Study Abroad Financial Support

There are FIVE different financial supports for study abroad; three offered by the College of Education and Human Ecology.

  1. Course Subsidies
    All EHE faculty-led study abroad courses receive significant subsidies from the college. This means that courses fees associated with the study abroad experience are heavily discounted. These discounts are built directly into the advertised course cost. In 2017-18, faculty-led study abroad course subsidies total approximately $100,000.
  2. EHE Ambassador Award
    The EHE Ambassador Award provides need-based financial assistance to EHE students participating in EHE faculty-led study abroad programs. One scholarship is awarded to an EHE student in each of the EHE faculty-led study abroad programs.
