Office of Study Abroad Scholarships

The Office of Study Abroad (OSA) manages a portfolio of scholarships for those students participating in approved OSA off-campus programs. All students are encouraged to apply, even if their approval for a program is not yet confirmed. The general scholarship application ensures that applicants are considered for every scholarship for which they are eligible.
