No fear. Going abroad - never mind studying abroad - is rarely the cheapest of things to do with your semester, but a lot of people limit their imaginations when they think of where money can come from. The point is, if money's an issue – do your research and don't give up just yet.
So, first all, you've got the study abroad scholarships our office offers. All you have to to do is give some extra information and write a short essay about why you need the scholarship. Could get you another thousand dollars or more. Not a bad start, right?
Then read this studyabroad.com page on scholarships for studying abroad. It gives five categories of scholarships and a long list of specific ones, with links. Click, read, think, fill out form, get money, go abroad. Hopefully, it's just as simple as that.
Finally, come to talk to us! Tami Lorenson and Tonya Veltrop both have oodles of information on everything related to studying abroad, so come and learn. Most importantly, don't just assume you can't go abroad because it's too expensive. Read, learn, and make an effort, if it's what you really want!
