Created in 2010 to expand access to study abroad, the Fund for Education Abroad scholarship seeks to diversify the pool of students who study abroad. To more closely reflect the U.S. demographics, this scholarship attempts to award students who are underrepresented in study abroad and/or are planning to participate in programs in non-traditional locations.

This year's application deadline is Monday, January 7, 2019. Applications must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. (Central Standard Time). 

Eligibility Requirements:

  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Current undergraduate, degree-seeking student in good standing
  • Demonstrated financial need
  • FEA gives preference to students that  are underrepresented in education  abroad such as First Generation, minority, and community college (transfer) students

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Teresa Kout in advance at or 319-335-0353.
