CIEE, IPO to Offer Matching Grant for Summer Pell Recipients

Monday, February 10, 2020

The International Programs Office (IPO) is excited to share a scholarship opportunity for students who already received a Federal Pell Grant and applied for Frederick Douglas Global Fellowship (FDGF).  CIEE, a leader in international education and UMass Education Abroad Partner, is awarding the Frederick Douglas Global Scholars to all qualified applicants.

CIEE will guarantee the $1,500 grant, which can be used toward any UMass-approved CIEE summer 2020 program. Additionally, UMass will match the amount, bringing the total to $3,000 toward the cost of a CIEE summer study abroad program.

Financial aid is rare for summer programs, and students are encouraged to consider this unique opportunity. The application deadline is February 14, 2020.

Information on completing the UMass study abroad application, as well as the list of approved CIEE summer program locations can be found here. Please note that this process is a mandatory component of going abroad, and needs to be completed in addition to the CIEE scholarship application.
