In most cases, any and all of your financial aid can be used to cover the costs of a study abroad program and, indeed, it is possible that your financial aid allotment could be increased to reflect the higher costs of study abroad. It is recommended that you consult a counselor in the Office of Financial Aid early in your planning to make sure that all provisions are in place to maximize your financial assistance. In addition to regular financial aid and scholarships, there are also special scholarships designated just for study abroad. These include scholarships through the IU Office of Overseas Study for IU Southeast students participating in certain IU-offered programs in amounts ranging from $750 to $3000. The IU Southeast Overseas Study and Ed Quinn Memorial Fund Scholarships can be used for any IU or IU Southeast study abroad program and are typically offered in amounts beginning at $250, including up to two $700 scholarships for students participating in IU Southeast-based study abroad programs. The IU Office of Overseas Study is also pleased to offer the David Starr Jordan Scholarship for students participating in IU Southeast-based programs in which at least three credit hours are earned. Students applying for this scholarship should use the application form for the Overseas Study Scholarship/Ed Quinn Memorial Fund grants and students who meet the eligibility requirements will automatically be considered for the David Starr Jordan Scholarships.
