Funding International Study
There are three sources of funding for international study:
1. Financial Aid:
Contact your Financial Aid Office (at BSU it is 508-531-2685) to see if you can
get a loan for a study away program. This depends on individual circumstances,
but may relieve financial stress from studying abroad. For more information,
please visit the Financial Aid website.
2.Scholarships: Funds are reserved for Bridgewater State University students participating in a study tour program for academic credit. Applicants must be full-time, matriculated students. Graduating undergraduates and graduate students are not eligible.
3. Student provides funds from work, parents/family, savings, etc.: Your savings, earnings from work, and family are a significant source of funds for these international educational experiences. Tell people you are close to (parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, family friends, etc.) that you are applying for an international study program and ask if they will contribute. You might be surprised at the answers you receive. By asking your friends and family you are giving them the opportunity to participate in your trip.
