There are many opportunities for Chief Sealth International students to travel the world. Applications are already past due for Global Visionaries (Guatemala), One World Now! (Morocco), NSLI-Y (fully funded language programs in several countries), and the CSIHS China Exchange Program. But there are more opportunities on the horizon.
New! Students: You're eligible for travel grants ranging from $500-$1500. Applications should be turned in to Mr. Zeichner in Room 235. Here's the application.
