Study Abroad Scholarships

While there are numerous educational and social programs offered for college students, there is only one that offers students the opportunity to travel the world while earning college credit, and that is a study abroad program. We have assembled everything you will need to know when deciding whether studying abroad is right for you, from why studying abroad is rewarding, to preparing for the trip overseas, to choosing the right program, and most importantly how to find funding.

There are many ways to fund your experiences overseas and many of the available scholarships and grants for study aboard programs are for, but not limited to those in dire financial need.
