Mission Statement

After celebrating over fifty years in international education as a non-profit organization, CIEE remains highly committed to our mission: "to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world."

Description

CIEE's USA High School Program is designated by the U. S. State Department to sponsor our students on a J-1 visa; we are also approved by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET). In addition, we have been chosen by the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag to represent a highly selective grant program for students from the United States and Germany. We also represent students who have been selected to participate in the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) grant program who come to us from the Newly Interdependent States that once formed the Soviet Union. Two years ago we were invited to add the "Youth Exchange and Study" (YES) program that provides scholarships for high school students from countries with significant Muslim populations to spend an academic year in the U.S. Last year we also added the A-SMYLE program with students from Serbia-Montenegro through the Future Leaders Exchange.

Student exchange programs have proven to be one of the best diplomatic tools in building bridges and continues to grow as a result of this.
