Global Navigator Scholarships Return

Imagine summer soccer in Tanzania – with a mission to empower young girls. Or squad time perfecting your French with croissants in a magical Parisian park. What if summer outside meant reforesting mangroves and tracking endangered birds in Costa Rica? Or perhaps studying theatre in London?

CIEE’s competitive Global Navigator scholarships are awarded to fewer than 100 high schools nation-wide. Madison West is proud to be one of them.  Over 60 Madison West students have participated since 2016 with award monies totaling  nearly $140,000.

These funds help students study abroad in amazing destinations including China, Japan, Tanzania, Senegal, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, South Africa, Morocco, Australia, France, India, Belgium, Spain, and Costa Rica. 

Any student who is presently a freshmen, sophomore or junior is eligible to apply for a scholarship to offset the cost of one of 58 summer programs through C.I.E.E. (The Council on International Educational Exchange).  Scholarships are awarded based on both merit and financial need and do not include airfare.
