Money Matters

Studying abroad is a possibility, so take advantage and act now! The Study Abroad Office helps students understand and prepare for the "real cost" of studying abroad. It may actually be less than you think. We strongly recommend that our students first of all choose the correct program based on their means. If a semester is out of their reach, maybe a summer program is the ideal choice. Students should also make wise use of financial aid, apply for scholarships, reach out for sponsorhips, start a savings plan, among other ideas. Our office will gladly help in each of these steps. The following timeline will help you get started.

Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship

The Gilman Scholarship Program provides awards for US undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide.
