It’s March and I need money for a three-week study abroad trip this summer. Can you help me find a scholarship?

Unfortunately, no. First, March is much too late to start looking for summer funding. For many scholarships, you must apply fifteen or even eighteen months before you plan to be abroad. Most deadlines for summer funding fall no later than January.

Second, unless your major happens to make you eligible for very specific (and limited) scholarship opportunities, very few scholarships will pay for short-term study abroad. Most are aimed at longer periods of study – three months to a year.

Scholarships for short-term BSU-sponsored study abroad are available from the Center for International Programs. Visit the Study Abroad program for more information.
