Students can apply for Dragons Abroad Scholarships in three different categories:

Diversity in Study Abroad: for students who represent groups that are underrepresented in Study Abroad, which may include: race/ethnicity/nationality; gender; sexual orientation; first generation college student; major (for majors that are underrepresented in study abroad); or ‘other’

Financial Need Scholarship: for students with high financial need.

Project Scholarship: for students who propose a unique project to help raise awareness and promote study abroad. The project can be completed after and/or during the student’s study abroad program.

Students can apply for the Dragons Abroad Scholarships during the study abroad program application process. In addition to the Dragons Abroad Scholarships, there are multiple external scholarships and grants available to students for their study abroad. Students are encouraged to work with the Fellowships Office to seek out those opportunities.

Intensive Course Abroad (ICA) Scholarship

The ICA Scholarship was created to support first time study abroad students who either demonstrate high financial need OR who represent an area of diversity that is under-represented in study abroad (race/ethnicity, LGBTQ, First Generation College student.)

The ICA Scholarship application is made available for select ICAs each term. When applicable, students may apply as part of the ICA program application. In addition to the ICA Scholarship, some departments or colleges may offer scholarships for specific ICAs.
