School for International Training (SIT) offers a number of Study Abroad programs in a variety of locations. They also offer a great deal of need-based scholarships to all qualified students who participate in semester-length SIT Study Abroad programs. All University of Iowa students who are accepted to a SIT program will receive a $1,500 SIT Public University scholarship. In addition to this automatic award, students should indicate their desire to apply for other need-based SIT scholarships; SIT offers a broad range of awards, including a Pell Grant Match to students who receive a federal Pell Grant.


SIT scholarship deadlines are consistent with the Study Abroad program application dates:

  • May 15 for fall programs
  • November 1 for spring programs
