Announcement: Upcoming Info Sessions & Events for Study Abroad

Visit our events calendar!

The Center for International Education hosts many sessions for students working through the process of studying abroad. See below for descriptions of upcoming sessions you can attend.
Financing Study Abroad 101 Sessions
Are you concerned about costs and funding for your study abroad program, or have you wondered how your financial aid applies? Or what about G.I. Bill funds? Additional scholarships? Consider attending one of Study Abroad’s Financing Study Abroad 101 Sessions. These sessions are co-led by Gayla Jenkins from the Financial Aid Office, who works specifically with study abroad students, and the Center for International Education (CIE).
This session is a great resource for students that are looking to learn more about study abroad costs, understand the budgets of programs, how financial aid can be used for study abroad, as well as general information on how to search for scholarships and other funding resources.

Gilman Scholarship Information Sessions
The Gilman Scholarship is a national scholarship that awards U.S. citizen undergraduate Pell Grant recipients up to $5,000 to study abroad for a semester or year. Gilman scholarships are awarded every semester.  In the past, students who have taken advantage of on-campus advising have been more likely to receive the award than students who applied on their own. To learn more, attend an informational session.
Boren Scholarship Information Sessions
Boren Scholarships provide up to $20,000 to U.S. undergraduate students studying abroad in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Students selected to receive a Boren Scholarship must commit to working for the U.S. government for at least a year following the completion of their education. This is a very competitive scholarship and requires an on-campus faculty review. Serious applicants should begin the process early. To learn more, attend an informational session.
