CEA is determined to help

CEA Global Education announced today their Educational Stimulus Package for Study Abroad students. Responding to reports from US colleges and universities at recent national conferences, CEA has implemented price reductions to 2008 levels and has also implemented $500 grants for Summer 2009 and $1000 grants for Fall 2009 study abroad programs. Meeting at the Forum on Education Abroad and the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) conventions in February, leaders in international education from leading US education institutions lamented the current worldwide recession and the impact on student access to study abroad opportunities.

"CEA is determined to help", commented Brian Boubek, Chairman of CEA Global Education. "Educators realize that many students have a narrow window, and international education is critical to many students' academic program and future career success. We felt that we could help some students who may otherwise lose the opportunity to study abroad in 2009."

Looking at cost savings due to a stronger dollar versus foreign currencies, CEA was able to lower prices for most programs. For example, Summer 2009 Liberal Arts and Business programs in Barcelona were reduced by $200 to $500. For students qualifying for a $500 study grants, Barcelona prices now range from $3,700 to $4,495 for a four-week program in June and July. Similarly, International Business and Spanish Language and Culture programs for Fall 2009 in Barcelona are now $11,595, a savings of $1,400 versus earlier prices.
