Additional Scholarships Available for Study Abroad

Thanks to a new affiliation between the University of Cincinnati and Cultural Experiences Abroad (CEA), at least four more $500 scholarships per year will now be available to UC students for education abroad.

Cultural Experiences Abroad is a study abroad provider that creates and facilitates opportunities for personal growth and global understanding through quality international education and cultural experiences at 20 universities in Spain, Italy, England, Australia, France, Ireland, Costa Rica and Mexico.  To achieve this, CEA works not only with the student, but with both the local and host universities to facilitate positive study abroad experiences for everyone involved.


Ann Halpin, Academic Relations Manager at CEA says, "By being a CEA Affiliate, University of Cincinnati provides students with enhanced advising and greater access to scholarships for studying abroad."


The key benefit for the student is access to scholarships.  Even though CEA offers more than $60,000 in other scholarships nationally, CEA offers more scholarships for students whose universities have signed an affiliate agreement.  In fact, four $500 scholarships each year are available exclusively to UC students.  In addition to the affiliate scholarship, students may also apply for other scholarships CEA lists on their website at


According to Karen Ramos, UC Education Abroad program manager: “We're very pleased that UC has affiliated with CEA because it will provide an array of various opportunities for our students considering study abroad programs.” 

UC also continues its longstanding affiliation with the University Studies Abroad Consortium, which assists thousands of students and faculty in going abroad each year. 

The first step to studying abroad is to visit the Institute of Global Studies and Affairs on campus.  The office is located in Room 3134, Edwards Center One.  The office can also be reached by phone at (513) 556-1363 or online at
