Available Scholarships

We strongly encourage you to consider applying for scholarships and loans designed specifically for study abroad.  Certainly, the cost of living in some places (such as London or Paris) is extremely high, and students must make every effort to budget their expenses. Even if you can easily afford to pay for your semester or year overseas, you may still consider these scholarships: some of them are merit-based, and represent an academic honor that would serve you well on your résumé.

Here is a list of some scholarships and financial resources for study abroad. Check with a financial aid adviser to discuss how these scholarships would affect your aid package. Be aware that many scholarships must be applied for as early as one semester or one year prior to your intended term(s) abroad.

  • Scholarships:
  • The Gilman Scholarship  In November 2000, the U.S. Congress approved the first ever federal scholarship program for study abroad. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of both need and merit. Details are available at www.iie.org/gilman/
  • The Institute for International Education In addition to the Gilman Scholarships, the Institute for International Education sponsors a variety of other scholarship programs. Check them out at www.iie.org/pgms/
  • The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers scholarships for studying in Germany, specifically the EDU.de Undergraduate Awards for summer or semester programs:   www.daad.org/
  • Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarships A long-standing scholarship program for study abroad. Students apply through their local Rotary club. Application deadlines are extremely early, so this requires advanced planning. www.rotary.org/foundation/educational/amb_scho/index.html
  • The Institute for International Public Policy (IIPP) is available to under-represented minorities.  Applications are due spring of the sophomore year.   http://161.58.87.106/content/program.cfm
