Funding your study
University of Iowa students can apply all federal and institutional scholarships and financial aid they receive towards the cost of study abroad.
In addition to the federal or UI funds you may already receive, you are encouraged to apply for a Study Abroad Need-Based Grant and/or a Study Abroad Merit-Based Scholarship, if you meet the eligibility requirements. Visit our Funding section for further information.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) holds a national undergraduate and graduate scholarship competition every year for study in Germany. The DAAD also offers heavily subsidized study abroad programs, such as RISE (Research in Science and Engineering).
