Must be accepted to a credit-bearing study abroad program to receive funding
UWG offers scholarship support for its students (degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students) interested in studying abroad. The amount of support you are eligible for will vary based on the length of your program and the number of credit hours you are enrolled in.
Each program that is led by a UWG faculty member receives an allocation to support program applicants from the Office of Education Abroad. For students participating in Faculty-Led programs, your scholarship award is determined by your program director, and you'll receive an official notice of the award from the Education Abroad Office. You can identify these programs in our list because they all begin with (UWG).
For students participating in exchange programs (Exchange), European Council programs (USG) and non-UWG programs, amounts are determined by the Office of Education Abroad, based on the length of your program, credit hours and application materials.
Students must complete this scholarship application in order to be eligible for funding through this program. All scholarship applications for students participating in (UWG) or (Exchange) programs are due on the same date as your program deadline. Students applying to non-UWG programs should submit scholarship applications by the deadline for registering participation in a non-UWG program for the semester you plan to study abroad (see the section on Transient Status in the menu to the left for more information).
All students who are awarded scholarship support for their programs will be expected to complete a "give-back" project, which will allow you to assist the Education Abroad Office by sharing your experience -- assisting your program director in promoting the program by talking to a class, helping out at the study abroad fair, sharing stories and photos of your experience with OEA for our website and social media and similar activities. Scheduling for give-backs is flexible, but students should be aware of this commitment to the University when they complete the application for funding.
If a student is awarded a scholarship but opts not to participate in his or her study abroad program, they will be responsible for repaying any scholarship amount that they have already used.
Students who are awarded one of the other scholarships distributed through our office (Wolves Abroad Grant, Wasdin International Scholarship) will not be able to receive funds from the general pool for the same term. Students applying for these awards should also submit this application; our office will adjust eligibility once winners for those awards are announced.
