    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win study abroad scholarships

    As you begin writing your study abroad scholarship applications, be sure to focus on what you hope to accomplish in your time abroad. Speak about past experiences and how they will help equip you to make the most of your experience. And be sure to fit the programs you’re applying for into your general career trajectory.

    Remember, study abroad can be a period of exploration and fun, but scholarship providers are not looking to fund a vacation. Be sure to speak of your semester abroad in terms of a learning experience and discuss clear goals you have for your time there. If you are learning the language of the country you’d study in, be sure to put that front-and-center, and discuss how being in that country will help you achieve fluency.

    Writing an effective essay

    Scholarship essays are their own artform, and there are many tips and tricks to help you write an effective application. We have guides to help you through that process. Let us help you start and end your scholarship essays, tailor your writing to 250 or 500 word limits, and write effectively about yourself. Be sure also to check out our guide to writing scholarship resumes, and responding to common scholarship prompts.

    Need-based financial aid for studying abroad

    One of the great things about study abroad is that students can qualify for financial aid to study abroad (just like any other academic semester). This means that any need-based financial aid you are receiving can be applied to pay for your study abroad semester. This includes need-based grants specifically from your college, as well as Pell Grants.

    This means that students will need to submit their FAFSA each year (as well as any other financial aid forms that your institution requires).

    Students who are receiving merit-based scholarships will also be able to apply their awards to a study abroad experience. In fact, some merit and full ride scholarships will offer students a specific stipend for study abroad.

    U.S. State Department Visa Services

    Unfortunately, study abroad isn’t all fun and games! There is a fair amount of paperwork you’ll have to complete, and one of the first steps, and the one you should be the most careful about, is the visa. You’ll need to get a student visa for wherever you are going. Start this process early, so if there are any complications, it won’t foil your plans to study abroad.

    U.S. State Department Passport Services

    It’s time to pull your passport out of that dusty drawer and check to make sure it’s all in order. Make sure that it does not expire within six months of the date of the end of your program. Some countries make this a requirement for entry. Passport services often take a long time, so be sure to start this early and keep on top of the process.

    Frequently asked questions

    Is my tuition the same if I study abroad?

    Tuition typically does not change when you study abroad. However, this can vary on a college-by-college basis. Make sure to be in touch with your school’s international study office, and financial aid office.

    How can I get a full scholarship to study abroad?

    If you are looking to study abroad through a program at an American university, you’ll have to get a full scholarship to your home university to study abroad for free. This is because you will still be paying tuition at your home school, regardless of whether you are studying abroad or not. However, some international schools offer tuition-free education. For more on this, check out our article on countries with free college.

    Can I still use a Pell Grant if I am studying abroad?

    If you are studying abroad through an accredited American university, you’ll be able to use a Pell Grant to fund your studies. So long as you are technically taking the courses through your university, there will be no issue. However, if you unenroll from your home school and enroll at an overseas university, you will not be able to use the Pell Grant.
