Semester at Sea (SAS) invites you to set sail on the world’s most unique floating college campus! Learning has never been this exciting as Semester at Sea’s passenger ship brings together students from all walks of life in a shipboard classroom setting and in 10+ countries around the globe. 

This one-of-a-kind study abroad program is the adventure of a lifetime, giving students a chance to travel to 10+ countries across 2-3 continents, earn 12-15 college credits, and make friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Exclusive $20K Scholarship Opportunity for Fall 2024!

Students attending HBCUs who are interested in sailing on Semester at Sea’s Fall 2024 Voyage are encouraged to apply for our HBCU Research Fellowship. Up to 5 eligible students will each receive a $20,000 scholarship. Fellows will be required to participate in a seminar to present their research project idea, and write (with the support of our communications team) three (3) blog articles throughout their voyage so that we may follow the progress of the project.

Why should you apply? Hear from current Fall 2023 voyager and HBCU Scholar, Phylicia, about her experience:

“You should apply if you just have a love for HBCUs, your HBCU or those around the world! Everybody should do Semester at Sea because it offers an experience– whether it be learning, travel, or just a new global perspective in a way that no other institution, externship, internship, or job can do. Semester at Sea is the perfect fit for that.”- Phylicia, NC A&T
