Scholarships for International Non-Degree Students Enrolled at U.S. Universities

Study Abroad students who receive federal or institutional financial aid at their home universities are often able to apply these funds to their study abroad program costs. You should meet with your study abroad and academic advisors to learn about opportunities for transferring aid.
