CIEE is the country’s oldest and largest nonprofit study abroad and intercultural exchange organization. Since 1947, CIEE has helped thousands of people gain the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world by offering the most comprehensive, relevant, and valuable exchange programs available.
Passport Caravan at Claflin is part of CIEE’s support of Generation Study Abroad™, an initiative to make study abroad possible for more U.S. students by breaking down the three major barriers to study abroad: cost, curriculum, and culture. CIEE will sponsor passports for 10,000 students around the country, during the next five years. CIEE will also provide $20 million in scholarships and make an annual grant to college faculty to support approaches for custom study abroad programs. The goal of Generation Study Abroad is to double the number of American students who study abroad by 2020.
