Annual Fund Overview

Why Is the Semester at Sea Annual Fund Important?

The Annual Fund is the lifeblood that keeps Semester at Sea strong. Gifts to the SAS Annual Fund support the areas of greatest need, including shipboard improvements, scholarships, and transformational Field Classes — and allow us to strategically address emerging needs and challenges as they arise.

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 a transformational study abroad journey to hundreds of exceptional 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.
