Scholarships Process

Plan Ahead—Which Scholarships Will You Apply For?  

Students planning to study abroad are encouraged to apply for scholarships early. Most scholarships do not require you to be accepted or even applied to a study abroad program to be eligible to apply for the scholarship. In addition to specific study abroad scholarships, you can also use most general scholarships to fund your study abroad experience.

Step 1: Review Learning Abroad Center and Recommended Scholarships 

To quickly determine which Learning Abroad Center and recommended scholarships you are eligible for, start with the Scholarships At A Glance Chart. This handy 1-page chart lets you quickly determine eligibility, award amounts, and deadlines for some of the most promising scholarships.
