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. The Full Bright Program is the largest U.S. International exchange program – offering students and professionals the opportunity to study, conduct research, and teach the English language in 140 countries. If you’re a member of Phi Kappa Phi you can apply for one of the forty-five $1,000 grants they distribute annually to study overseas.
