Study Abroad Scholarships and Financial Aid

Financial Aid Information

The good news is that money from Federal Financial Aid Programs may be used for studying abroad, as long as students are enrolled in a degree program, enrolled for a certain number of credit hours during the academic term they receive aid, and the study abroad coursework is pre-approved for credit by their academic advisors before they leave. State aid might also be able to be applied, depending upon the program. You should consult in advance with the UNF Financial Aid Office to determine what you will be eligible for.
