Skyline High School students now have a worldly opportunity thanks to the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE).
CIEE and donor Sheron Long have named Skyline High School as a participant in the 2016–17 Global Navigator Scholarship awards for summer study abroad. The scholarships are intended to open the world to students, helping them navigate across languages, connect with other cultures, and impact global/local issues in today’s interconnected world.
The Global Navigator Scholarship earmarks $20,000 in scholarship dollars for Skyline students to study abroad during the summer. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors who elect to apply to the CIEE Summer High School Abroad programs will be considered for the awards, based on both merit and need. Global Navigator Schools are a select group of fewer than 100 high schools nationwide. The only other Global Navigator School in Dallas ISD is the Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy.
Skyline High School will soon receive instructions on how students can apply for the scholarships.
