When financing your Education Abroad experience, preparation and planning is key. We recommend that you begin planning your finances at least one year in advance of your trip. The Financial Aid Office is available and eager to help you begin and navigate this process.

Once you have been accepted into your study abroad program, the Center for International Studies will submit an official budget to the Financial Aid Office prior to your term abroad. If you applied for financial aid, the program budget and cost sheet supplied by CIS will be used to estimate your financial aid eligibility and award for the term(s) that you are studying abroad.
Many students will borrow additional loans to cover Education Abroad program costs. You can keep your debt load down by budgeting closely, borrowing only what you need and paying for as much as you can out of pocket with savings or earnings from work.
Scholarships also are available through Huskies Scholarships, CIS, endowed scholarships, and national and foreign-funded scholarships also are available to help with travel costs, living expenses and tuition.
