Payton Selected as “Global Navigator Scholarships School” (Application Deadline: March 1, 2015): On behalf of donor Sheron Long and CIEE, the Council on International Educational Exchange, Payton’s Global Connections is pleased to announce that Payton Prep has been selected to participate in the 2014-15 Global Navigator Scholarship awards for summer study abroad. The scholarships are intended to open the world to students, helping them navigate across languages, connect with other cultures, and develop global competencies for thriving in today’s interconnected world.
The Global Navigator Scholarships earmark $20,000 scholarship dollars for Payton students to study abroad during the summer. This is in addition to the $1.2 million in scholarship money that is available nationwide. Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who elect to apply to one of the 30 CIEE Summer High School Abroad programs will be considered for the awards, based on both merit and need. Programs are in the summer and range from 3 to 4 weeks and include language/cultural immersion, community service, and varied academic programs including science and global entrepreneurship.
From now through the scholarship application deadline of March 1, 2015—and after—CIEE is here to support you. Payton’s dedicated contact is Marianne Rubin: firstname.lastname@example.org and by phone at 1-800-331-1567.
