Education abroad experiences are critical to gaining an international perspective that will set you apart in your career and help you reach your goals.

One of the perceived barriers to studying abroad is the cost of the program. At UT Austin, we work with students to maximize funding opportunities. Scholarship awards can range from $500 to $4,000, and we encourage students to apply for as many scholarships as they are eligible for.

We recommend that as soon as students start to plan their education abroad experience, they start to review different scholarship opportunities. Each scholarship has a unique timeline and application process, so it is important to start researching scholarship opportunities as soon as possible. Many scholarship deadlines are the same as the program application deadline - not after. It is imperative that you research scholarships early and apply for scholarships in tandem with your program application.
