All students are encouraged to apply for education abroad scholarships and learn how other forms of aid may be utilized to pay for education abroad expenses. Most scholarship deadlines are well in advance of your program application deadline and students are advised to apply up to one year in advance of their term abroad in order to maximize scholarship opportunities.
Several forms of financial assistance are available for study abroad directly through UMW Financial Aid, including Federal Pell Grant, Federal Stafford Loans, Federal Parent Loans (PLUS), and alternative loans.
If you participate in the Virginia529 prePAID program, notify CIE prior to applying to a study abroad program. PrePAID funds will cover only the equivalent of UMW tuition; students are responsible for paying the difference between total study abroad program cost and the amount covered by prePAID.
