CIEE Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship

CIEE Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship logo

The Frederick Douglass Fellowship is a four-week fully funded study abroad program for students of color that explores strategies for promoting social justice, resolving conflict, and advancing peace. There’s a video with some highlights of our experience here.

CIEE remains committed to making study abroad more accessible to students and one way we are doing so is through the Frederick Douglass Global Scholars Grant. This grant is awarded to all applicants who submit a Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship application and meet all eligibility requirements but are not selected for the Fellowship.

The $1,500 grant can be used toward any CIEE summer, fall, and spring program. So, although only 16 Fellows will be selected for the summer cohort, many more will receive the $1,500 Frederick Douglass Scholars Grant.
