We can't do it alone
As our alumni know, the opportunity to step out of the familiar and into a new sense of calling is lived out in real time by the students who participate in the CCCU’s nine off-campus programs. BestSemester provides students with a unique learning opportunity while offering new insights on faith, culture, and personal vocation.
According to the Chronicle of Higher Education and the Institute of International Education the number of students studying abroad has increased nearly 150% in the last decade. But, the gap between students’ desire to study off-campus and their ability to afford to do so can be a significant challenge. While 55% of college bound high-school seniors surveyed in 2008 said they planned to study overseas, in reality only 1% of American students actually do so.
Your gift will help continue to make BestSemester programs accessible to as wide a group of potential students as possible. By contributing to a student grant you will be assisting those students who would likely be unable to participate on the basis of their existing financial resources. We invite you to join us and help make off-campus study a possibility for all CCCU students.
