About

Spend a month learning from some of the best faculty in Barcelona! On Summer at Barcelona International College, you’ll soak up all that this cultural hub of the Mediterranean has to offer, both inside and outside the classroom. Barcelona enjoys a Mediterranean climate with comfortable summer temperatures in the mid-70s. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy Barcelona’s famed beaches. Barcelona is home to more World Heritage sites than any other city in Europe. You will witness 2,000 years of architectural and cultural splendor. The numerous museums, churches, cathedrals, concert halls, the modern art of Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, and the influential architecture of Antoni Gaudí and Mies van der Rohe make Barcelona an aesthetically appealing destination for visitors from all over the world.

This award is intended for students within the LGBTQIA+ community, as part of CIS Abroad’s commitment to Generation Study Abroad. Studying abroad as an LGBTQIA+ or gender nonconforming student brings an additional set of challenges and options to consider. There are some questions you may want to ask yourself, and research to be done, before choosing a study abroad program – but our LGBTQIA+ students have amazing experiences abroad and often find local LGBTQIA+ communities to be a part of. Recipients will select from a variety of mediums to share their story while abroad, in addition to submitting a photo testimonial.

This scholarship is intended to help fund the visa process, flights, and international housing for students who are among the first from their family to go to college. Recipients will share their story of learning and exploration while abroad with a photo gallery and their choice of travel vlog, blogging, or an Instagram takeover.
