Financial Aid 

Financial considerations play a key role in the decision to study abroad. We want to help students achieve their ideal experiences and understand finding the right mix of location, programming and cost is essential.

Just as in the United States, locations around the world have different costs of living. Study abroad is an exercise in adaptability, and students who plan their experiences with an open mind are often best served.

Some scholarships to consider include:

· Haslam Undergraduate Study Abroad Scholarships
· UT Center for International Education Study Abroad Scholarships
· Boren Awards for International Study
· Critical Language Scholarship Program
· First Year Experience Scholarships
