Financial Aid & Scholarships for Study Abroad Programs

It is important to stay organized when planning for your finances abroad. Studying abroad demands effort and dedication. You need to analyze, along with your parents, what is your financial budget due to the extra costs of studying abroad. Costs to consider include airline tickets, health insurance, tuition, housing, visas, and traveling on breaks and weekends. There are many affordable options for study abroad. First, you need to understand the cost-benefit of each option you have, but there is a viable option for every budget.

Financial Aid Options

Stevens’ institutional aid may be used for specific exchange partner programs. Approved exchange and study abroad programs may be eligible for Federal financial aid; contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information at financialaid@stevens.edu. Financial aid eligibility varies by program and student. For students with Pell grant eligibility, Gilman scholarships are available.
