Portland Public Schools students have received more than $49,000 in Global Navigator Scholarships to help them study abroad this summer.

A total of 22 PPS high school students will be traveling abroad through the CIEE High School Summer Abroad Program this summer. CIEE, which stands for Council on International Educational Exchange, is the country’s oldest and largest nonprofit study abroad and intercultural exchange organization.
