Global Education Center
The Global Education Program Center at Shasta College looks to identify and develop study abroad experiences into transferable college-level courses that incorporate science and service learning while providing opportunities that are rich learning experiences and establish greater global awareness.
We currently offer a Korean Exchange Program, a Global Expedition Program and an International Student Program.
For more information regarding our Global Education programs you can reach our office at (530) 242-7626 or by emailing Taylor Mobley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our office is open from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday and is located in Room 2308.
The resources listed below offer a variety of opportunities outside of Shasta College to study abroad as well as scholarships and grants specifically aimed at helping students fund educational opportunities abroad.
International Education Week
International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
We encourage the participation of all individuals and institutions interested in international education and exchange activities, including schools, colleges and universities, embassies, international organizations, businesses, associations, and community organizations.
California Colleges for International Education is a consortium dedicated to the ideal of increasing international understanding through education. At present, eighty-four California community colleges are members. California Colleges for International Education (CCIE) is a consortium established in 1984. CCIE is dedicated to the ideal of increasing international understanding through education and collaboration. The consortium helps support the growth of programs affiliated to international education: a) Faculty Exchanges; b) International Business; c) International Development/ Contract Education; d) International Students; e) Internationalizing the Curriculum; and f) Study Abroad. CCIE sponsors a Clearinghouse Webpage, http://www.lmu.edu/globaled/ccie, annual meetings, thematic workshops, quarterly study abroad brochure, and a monthly newsletter that serve to advance these efforts. In addition, CCIE hosts an annual faculty grant/student scholarship competition in which monies are provided for staff development and student experiential learning. CCIE is the primary voice of international education in the state and is instrumental in bringing the Chancellor’s Office Global Education/International Education programs to scale system wide.
IEFA is the premier resource for financial aid, college scholarship and grant information for US and international students wishing to study abroad. At this site, you will find the most comprehensive college scholarship search and grant listings plus international student loan programs and other information to promote study abroad.
Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies abroad. Such international study is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.
The Center for Global Education promotes international education to foster cross-cultural awareness, cooperation and understanding. Living and working effectively in a global society requires learning with an international perspective.
We promote this type of learning by collaborating with colleges, universities and other organizations around the world to:
- create new and enhance existing study abroad programs;
- integrate an international and intercultural perspective into the US educational system;
- increase the ethnic diversity of participants in study abroad and provide special resources to support their participation;
- provide information to better prepare students and other travelers for their experience abroad; and
- encourage research in the field of international education.
