Institute for Shipboard Education (ISE): C.Y. Tung Scholarship
The C.Y. Tung Program in Sino-U.S. Relations is in honor of C.Y Tung, who was instrumental in the founding of Semester at Sea. Tung, a Chinese shipping magnate, founded the world’s first global shipboard educational program in 1963. Tung was a visionary global leader in the critical importance of multi-country study abroad and cross-cultural understanding among young people.
The Institute for Shipboard Education (ISE) is a private, nonprofit, educational corporation that administers the Semester at Sea (SAS), a multiple country study abroad program open to students of all majors emphasizing comparative academic examination, hands-on field experiences, and meaningful engagement in the global community.
