Drake and other external organizations offer scholarships for international education experiences.
Our office recommends that you apply to Drake’s Global Learning Scholarships, as well as outside scholarships to help fund your program abroad. Donors to Drake have been generous in offering funding specifically for international programs, and our office is happy to award more than $100,000 a year to Drake students to assist them in affording life transforming educational experiences in global settings. Additionally, there are external organizations that offer funding for international experiences, and we strongly recommend exploring these options too. Make sure to apply early, as many scholarships deadlines occur before the study abroad deadline!
These scholarships are designed to enable students to reach their full potential as responsible global citizens. Nearly all scholarships are financial need based but have slightly different selection criteria.
If you are applying to an Affiliate 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 Affiliate 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:
