Funding Education Abroad

Drake University

Undergraduate scholarships, postgraduate scholarships, other funding

Depending on the program and site, a semester or year abroad on a Partner Program is comparable in cost to a semester or year at Drake.

Financial aid is available for study abroad, and the Office of Student Financial Planning reviews each student's package individually. Drake University allows students to take 100% of their loans, grants, and scholarships on approved Partner Programs.

Supplemental study abroad scholarship money is available to students demonstrating exceptional financial need, as funds allow.

National Study Abroad Scholarships

If you are applying to an Partner Partner program, you are likely eligible for their scholarships and grants. These may be need or merit-based awards, and require a separate application directly with the Partner. Scholarship deadlines may be earlier than the study abroad program deadline, therefore, early planning can pay off! Check out other sources for study abroad scholarships:

Boren Scholarship is sponsored by the National Security Education Program and provides up to $20,000 to study a language or area that has been deemed critical to U.S. foreign interests. See more details below about the application timeframe and deadline.
