Study Abroad Scholarships

There are a number of educational – and social – opportunities you can experience while in college. But there is only one that offers students the opportunity to see the world while earning college credit, and that’s a study abroad program. We've assembled everything you’ll 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.

The best way to fund your trip overseas is for free and there are countless financial aid opportunities to do just that. Many of the scholarships and grants available are need-based, but that’s not always the case. The Full Bright Program – the largest U.S. International exchange program – offers students and professionals the opportunity to study, conduct research, or teach English 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.

Check out the scholarships and grants we’ve complied below for award options you may be eligible to receive. To find addition information about scholarships, grants, internships and fellowships conduct a free college scholarship search.
