​​Most students are surprised to discover that it doe​s not necessarily cost much more to study abroad. Costs vary significantly depending on the type and duration of the program. Study abroad exchanges with partner universities keep many programs affordable for our students. For student's looking for additional cost-saving opportunities, there is financial support available via scholarship and financial aid. The needs and qualifications of each student are determined on an individual basis. Do not let assumed cost concerns keep you from studying abroad!

To be eligible for a study abroad scholarship, all interested students must first apply and be registered in the University of Findlay Scholarship Manager System. Access to this system is available using the Scholarsh​ip Manager.
