Not quite sure if you would like to spend a full semester abroad? A summer program is a great way to get just a taste of study abroad. Summer programs are also a good option if you are not able to fit semester or academic year study abroad in to your specific program. You may participate in a summer program as early as the summer following your freshman year.

To research programs sponsored by other colleges and universities, visit the Study Abroad Resource Library in our office and read the Institute for International Education publication entitled Short Term Study Abroad. Application deadlines for summer programs vary, but typically they are in February or March.
Financial aid is limited for summer programs. Normal university scholarships and grants are not available. However, the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures offers the Burton Fellowship, which is for students pursuing summer language study overseas. Also, the Boren Scholarship, a federally funded program, is available for U.S. citizens who wish to study in certain non-western countries. In addition, some study abroad programs offer their own scholarships.
