Semester at Sea Annual Fund

Semester at Sea continues to set the standard in comparative global education and gifts to the SAS Annual Fund have an immediate impact upon our ability to deliver first-class education to exceptional students.

We rely on private support to meet the changing needs of Semester at Sea, as we must adapt quickly to fluctuating fuel prices, current events, weather, and student needs. Your support of the SAS Annual Fund allows us to provide transformational global study abroad experiences to hundreds of the best and brightest students each semester.

Please support the SAS Annual Fund by making a gift today. A gift to Semester at Sea is an investment in the future and reflects your commitment to global education, peace, and better tomorrows. The world is waiting.
