UWG Scholarship Opportunities for Study Abroad

Costa RicaUWG offers scholarships as a way of helping to make foreign study more accessible for students interested in the opportunity. There are two kinds of scholarships you can apply for. All UWG students who are accepted into a UWG program (short term or exchange) or approved external program are eligible for UWG General Study Abroad Scholarships. These generally range from $200-$800 ($1000-$1500 per exchange semester) depending on the length of your program and other factors (like financial need or academic preparation). If you're interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, make sure you apply by the deadline for your program. You must have a completed scholarship application on file to be eligible for these awards.  

All scholarship recipients will be expected to share their experience in some way once they return -- by submitting photos of your experience, talking to students at the Study Abroad Fair, helping your program director get the word out about the program or writing a short piece for the OEA Facebook page. If you've got questions about the scholarship application or about this requirement, feel free to contact our office at goabroad@westga.edu.


DubaiUWG also has a program to assist first-time travelers (those who have never been outside of the 48 contiguous states, Alaska and Hawaii). The Wolves Abroad Grant program is a competitive award program that provides a limited number of larger awards for study abroad (ranging from $1500-$5000, depending on the length of your program). Applicants must have at least a 2.75 GPA and will need to submit an essay and two letters of reference. The award is contingent upon your being accepted to the program you've applied to for this academic cycle; students may not transfer an award to a future year. Applications are due Nov. 5, and recipients will be notified by the end of the fall semester
