Undergraduate Scholarships for Study Abroad

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 $500,000 in scholarships/grants this year. We encourage you to apply for any awards for which you are eligible!  Students completing scholarships with essay components are highly encouraged to utilize the Writing Center to review their work prior to submission.
