Scholarships and Funding

Education abroad can be very affordable, but it’s important to do your research to make sure the program you choose fits you—both academically and financially. We encourage you to start planning early.

Plan ahead

  • Start your search early! You can often apply for education abroad scholarships, grants, etc., before you have applied or are accepted into your program.
  • Your existing financial aid package and scholarships may be applied to approved education abroad programs.
  • Talk to One Stop Student Services to understand the cost of your UT education as well as how you currently finance it. For some scholarships you will need to demonstrate financial need through the submission of a FAFSA.
