Study Abroad Scholarships


Studying Abroad can be a life changing experience, and sometimes students need help with finances for the trip. Here are some scholarship opportunities for students traveling on the Arts and Sciences Faculty-Led Study Abroad courses. We encourage all students, regardless of financial status, to apply.

We also recommend speaking with your individual departments to see if there are any scholarship opportunities available for students in your major. You can also speak with the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to see what funding options you might have available.
