Scholarship support is the most tangible expression of the UI’s commitment to increasing the number of students who study/conduct research abroad. Study Abroad expects to disburse more than $600,000 in scholarships this year. Different sets of merit-based scholarships and need-based grants are available to students studying abroad for a semester/academic year and for students studying abroad during the summer/winter sessions (or other short periods of time). We encourage you to apply for any awards for which you are eligible! Additionally, there are diversity and other UI scholarships, and several, significant external awards that support study abroad.
