Scholarships for Study Abroad
You do not have to spend a fortune to go abroad! For many students the idea of studying abroad is very appealing, but many are worried about the cost. There is an assumption made that study abroad is much more expensiven than a regular semester at UCM, and many students are discouraged from even applying.
A variety of grants and scholarships are available for UCM students to help support abroad programs. Most UCM financial aid may be applied to study abroad through UCM sponsored programs. These include the Regents and Distinguished Scholar awards, departmental scholarships, Pell Grants, and most other forms of financial aid. Please visit the Student Financial Services office for full information on how financial aid may apply to your study abroad program.
International Studies Grant
Students pay UCM in-state tuition while abroad for full-time enrollment. A $1000 International Studies Grant is also provided to each participant who is enrolled full-time during a fall or spring Study Abroad program. Summer grants are also available and are a minimum of $500 for those attending UCM-sponsored Study Abroad programs. This grant does not apply to study tours. No application is necessary. This grant will be applied directly to the student's UCM account once the student has been accepted to study abroad through the UCM International Center and the host university. The student must also submit all other required paperwork, flight itinerary, and attend the manditory Study Abroad Orientation to receive the grant.
