Selected students attend summer study-abroad programs designed and directed by the Council on International Educational Exchange.
The scholarships are given to schools demonstrating a commitment to developing global citizens and enthusiasm for world language instruction. Scholarship recipients then are selected by CIEE from the school’s applicants based on both merit and financial need.
The first session runs from June 10 to July 7 and will include these PHS students:

This is the third year in a row that PHS has received scholarships. Last year, four PHS students studied in France, Thailand, the Dominican Republic, and Botswana; in 2016 nine students went to Mexico, Spain, Germany, Botswana, the Dominican Republic, and Chile.
Only schools offering a Global Education Achievement Certificate can apply for the scholarships. Students can apply for any of 44 CIEE programs in 22 destinations. All programs combine cultural immersion and top-notch academics, and each focuses on language and culture, service and leadership, or global discovery.
All PHS freshmen, sophomores and juniors are invited to apply for 2019 scholarships by Dec. 1.
