Financial Aid & Scholarships

The Global Education Office strives to make study abroad opportunities accessible and affordable for all students. We offer a variety of different program models, so that students can work with our office to find a program that is both affordable and best fits their academic needs. Browse our program brochures and consult with a study abroad advisor to learn which program will best fit your budget and your major.

Below you will find information and resources related to using financial aid and scholarships to study abroad. Should you have any additional questions about funding your study abroad experience, please reach out to the Global Education Office.  

Financial Aid & Marymount Scholarships

Most financial aid and scholarships that a student receives at Marymount will automatically be applied to the study abroad program; however, there are some exceptions (i.e. Work Study, Clare Booth Luce), and we advise students to work with financial aid to determine which forms of financial aid they will be able to use for their time abroad.

Eligibility: You must be a student enrolled in a degree-seeking program at Marymount to be eligible for financial aid. Most aid requires a minimum of twelve credits per semester and at least six credits in the summer term to maintain minimal eligibility for financial aid.

Limits: There are limits to how much financial aid you can receive (especially during the summer months), and your financial aid award may not cover the entire cost of study abroad experience. The Global Learning Office will prepare a Cost of Attendance Adjustment Form for the student’s term abroad, and the student will work with Financial Aid to understand their aid package and their eligibility for any supplementary loans.

External Scholarships

Students planning to study abroad are encouraged to research and apply for external scholarships early. Many of our provider partners have scholarships they offer to students, and students may be eligible for other third-party scholarships offered through the government and other foundations. A sample of external scholarships is found below, but students should consult with their study abroad advisor and complete independent research to learn about additional scholarship opportunities that they may be eligible for.
