DEI Abroad Resources

Students on a Budget Abroad

It may feel like it would be impossible for you to participate in a program abroad, but by no means is this true! Yes, it will require some advanced planning, work, and determination on your part, but it can be done, and there are resources available to help you achieve your goal! There are different ways for you to make study abroad affordable, all which include scholarships, grants, and using existing financial aid. It's important to review all of your funding options to ensure that studying abroad is something you can afford to do, while also giving yourself enough of a financial cushion that you actually enjoy your time abroad. It requires balance and patience, but when well-prepared, students can certainly go abroad having spent little to no extra funds.
