Scholarships & Funding

Cost is a major factor when deciding to study abroad.  Although there are some additional costs, like airfare, passport/visa fees, and other travel-related expenses, studying abroad does not have to be prohibitively expensive.  There are many funding options available to help make study abroad more affordable, but it's important to start early.  Most scholarship applications are due months in advance, and many are competitive.  To get started, here are some funding options to consider:
