Scholarships Make Study Abroad Dreams Come True
We’re excited to announce that CIEE’s study abroad and scholarship application is open! Any student is eligible to apply for a scholarship through CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange. Global Navigator Scholarships help students study abroad in over 30 amazing destinations, such as China, the Dominican Republic, Ghana, France, Spain and Thailand.
You could make a difference in the environment, education, or children’s rights with a Service & Leadership Program (earn 50 hours of Service Learning), or learn one of seven languages with a rich Language & Culture program (earn 4 college credits). Interested in new media? You could build a digital media project in Spain. That’s just one of the Global Discovery Program options that give you hands-on experience in fields such as Marine Science, World Government, or Global Entrepreneurship.
A Global Navigator Scholarship is your ticket to exploring places you’ve only seen on Instagram, and a great way to gain skills to help you chart your course into the future.

Special interest initiatives for Spanish at OSU
The Center for Latin American Studies at OSU has recently launched a number of initiatives of special interest to K-12 Spanish (and, to a certain extent, French and other) teachers.
This is an online course that is open to native and non-native speakers of Spanish and will be taught in Spanish. If you are not a current OSU student, you can enroll as a Graduate Non-Degree student.
Registration deadline is on a rolling basis until all spots are full. If you are interested (or know someone who is), you can register here: https://u.osu.edu/
