Studying Scholarship Opportunities for studying abroad?

  1. Oct 5, 2011 #1
    Hi all!

    I hope this is the right place to post this.

    I am trying to do a study abroad in Great Britain this spring, but none of my home institution scholarships transfer over, meaning I will have to pay a pretty hefty sum.

    I'm trying to find some scholarships specifically for studying abroad. I'm doing some searching online myself, but I didn't know if anyone had anything to contribute or things that I should definitely check out.

    I'm an Applied Physics major with a Computer Science minor, Junior level. I'm a female, so if there are any scholarships out there that you know of dealing specifically for women in physics, pass that along as well.

    Any tips or anything is also appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

    When I did a study abroad, all the billing was done through the university so my scholarships transferred over. Given I still payed more to go abroad. How exactly do your scholarships transfer over? If they aren't willing to work with you on funding, they might not be willing to work with you on course credit either. Before looking for external scholarships, try to get the ones you already have to apply. Have you looked at going with a program like ISA? If your university sanctions one of those programs, they should work with you. Does your university have an International Affairs office you can work with?

    On to your original question, there simply aren't a lot of scholarships just for study abroads. I received a couple hundred dollars from my university and a bit more from the actual study abroad program
