The mission of the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is to provide scholarships and ongoing support to students who are underrepresented among the U.S. study abroad population.
FEA awards up to $5,000 for a fall or spring semester abroad, with a minimum of $1,000 for short-term programs.
While we encourage all students to apply for an FEA scholarship, preference is given to students of color, first-generation college students, community college students, and students with high financial need.
Interested in studying in Madrid or Paris?
Cuyamaca and Grossmont students are encouraged to apply for the 2023 study abroad programs in Madrid and Paris. If such a program sounds interesting, you might want to join one of the informational meetings scheduled this semester during which time you'll learn about the semester abroad in Madrid and the intersession abroad in Paris. There's no need to commit--the meetings are designed simply to inform students about this exciting opportunity.
Here is the schedule of study abroad meetings:
Madrid Spring 2023
