Studying abroad will be one of the most important and memorable adventures of your undergraduate career. Planning and financing your program adequately will ensure a successful experience. We recommend that you start planning and saving early. Some helpful tips below will get you started.
Steps to studying abroad:
Steps to financing your study abroad program:
- Put any extra student loan money from your fall and spring semesters into savings.
- Make sure that you have applied for financial aid by filing your FAFSA, and once admitted, contact the Study Abroad Office for the cost sheet and turn it in to the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible.
- Search for scholarships, and apply early.
- Consult the Financing your Study Abroad Program handbook offered by the Study Abroad Office. This handbook offers many tips for saving and fundraising for your study abroad experience. You will also find helpful information on how to use financial aid and scholarships. Please note: the School of Human Evolution and Social Change programs are "faculty-directed" programs, so make sure to pay attention to that information.
Students must fill out the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid in order to be eligible for student loans and/or grants. Students who qualify for financial aid are eligible to use their awarded funds toward paying program tuition and/or program fees. The study abroad coordinator and international coordinator in the Study Abroad Office will assist you in obtaining the necessary information, such as the cost sheet, to take to ASU's Financial Aid Office.
Non-ASU students: You are still eligible to use financial aid to cover the costs of your program; however, you must work with your home institution's financial aid office. ASU does not offer financial aid to non-ASU students.
The Study Abroad Office also offers a list of national scholarships that are available to anyone.
In addition, there are many outside-ASU sources that may be useful in obtaining scholarships, grants or even loans for your study abroad, field school or internship program:
