Study-Abroad Scholarships

February 22, 2008

by Paulina Mis

As much as they would like to, not all students can afford to study abroad. Those with jobs at home or bills to take care of may consider travel a luxury, one they have neither the time nor the finances to afford.

If the Paul Simon Study Abroad Foundation Act is passed by the Senate, students with financial problems may receive new federal assistance for travel. Until then, students can look to study-abroad scholarships for help. Regardless of their financial situations at home, students who receive financial aid may be able to overcome obstacles caused by fund shortages.

Check out the study-abroad scholarships below for some options that can help you travel at a margin of the cost. For additional information about college scholarships and grants, try conducting a free college scholarship search.

Study Abroad AIFS Scholarship

Each year, the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS) awards more than $250,000 in scholarships to students who demonstrate academic achievement and submit exceptional scholarship essays. Six different scholarship options are available to students who study abroad during the school year or summer term.

Fulbright Scholarship

The Fulbright scholarship program is the largest U.S. international exchange program. During the 2006 year, nearly six thousand grants were awarded to U.S. students, teachers, professionals and scholars interested in studying or conducting research abroad.

The Gilman International Scholarship Program

The Gilman Program awards 820 scholarships of up to $5,000 to undergraduate students who are citizens of the U.S. The program was created to help students with financial difficulties afford travel abroad. Students with financial need, diverse backgrounds, disabilities, those who attend community college and those in under-represented fields (sciences and engineering) are given preference.

The RTKL Traveling Fellowship

The RTKL Traveling Fellowship was created to encourage travel for the purpose of a professional degree. One fellowship of $2,500 will be awarded each year to the student who submits the best itinerary as it relates to his or her educational goals.

ESAC Scholarship Program

The Europe Study Abroad Center awards scholarships for four-week trips to Prague. The trips are for college students and recent graduates interested in business, marketing and entrepreneurship. Students from any college, major and country are eligible to apply.
