You might be able to apply your college or graduate school financial aid — especially federal financial aid — toward study abroad.
Scholarships are a good way to finance a study abroad program. When you find a scholarship that you qualify for, see if it can be applied to international study. Some scholarships focus exclusively on those going overseas or to certain countries.
Ask your academic adviser, financial aid counselor, and study abroad office for more information on paying for study abroad and your eligibility for financial aid.
