Study Abroad Programs for Low-Income Students

Colleges and universities provide financial aid to assist low-income students in participating in study abroad programs. My own university offers scholarships and financial aid packages to support students who enroll in study abroad programs.

Augustana College, a liberal arts college in northwestern Illinois, reportedly targets extensive financial aid toward low-income students.


Many undergraduate students have access to study abroad opportunities these days. Although financial aid packages usually do not cover all of the expenses of studying abroad, they do defray the costs allowing a broader student body to experience other cultures through study abroad programs.

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports on study abroad programs at Augustana College.
