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.
