Financial Aid

If you are considering applying for financial aid to assist with the cost of going abroad, be sure to work that element into your personal timeline as well. Some foundations, such as Rotary International, require applications over one year in advance.

There is information about grants, fellowships and scholarships, and loans on this website (see below for links) or in the Financial Aid Binder in the Global Center. Keep in mind that meticulous and early planning is always critical to obtain finacial aid. In additon to focusing on the internal Financial Aid, you might need to look for external opportunities.
