Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

The safety of our program participants is our highest priority, and all of our decisions about program suspensions will reflect that commitment to participant safety.

CIEE’s policy is to conduct an updated risk review when the U.S. Department of State (DOS) issues a Level 3 advisory in any country. Given that the entire global community was declared a DOS Level 3 on March 11, 2020, we are currently evaluating and reviewing risk assessments and will continue to keep you updated.

CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange is responsible for the administration, management, and program support for BAFF Scholarship programs.

You can find all Statements and Program notices online.
