10.5.4. Financial Assistance for Study Abroad

Students who wish to apply for financial assistance should contact the director of financial aid early in the pursuit of a study-abroad program to determine what funds may be available.

A variety of external scholarships and grants exist to financially support students who study abroad for credit. Students should consult with the director of financial aid, peruse the scholarship directory on the global education website, and do their own searches. Deadlines for these scholarships can be as much as a year before a program begins, so students should begin their planning as early as possible. Students do not need to be already accepted to a program to apply for most scholarships. Policy for a Second Semester of Study at University of Oxford, Oxford, England
