California Language Teachers’


Send Your Top Student Abroad On a Scholarship

The CLTA/CIEE Student of the Year award is back! California World Language Teacher’s Association Members can now nominate their most dedicated student for a chance to earn a study abroad scholarship and be honored at the 2023 CLTA conference as CLTA-CIEE California Language Student of The Year. The winning student will take home $5,000, valid on any CIEE high school summer abroad Language & Culture program! Two runners-up will also be awarded $2,500 scholarships.

There can only be one Student of the Year, but everybody’s a winner! Each student who is nominated and who completes an application will automatically receive a $200 discount on their CIEE high school summer abroad program! Better yet, they will also be considered for a Global Navigator scholarship to be eligible for 10%-100% of total program tuition costs.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to recognize a deserving student and support your students to study abroad!
