Grants and Scholarships

(See the links below for further information and the application.)

 USF Education Abroad Scholarships
:   The Education Abroad office offers scholarships for summer study-abroad, usually ranging from from $500.00-$2000.00.  While none of these scholarships are intended to pay for an entire program, they are meant to aid our students in covering some of the costs associated with international study.  Students do not need to submit separate scholarship applications for each scholarship; the Education Abroad Office will determine eligibility based on one electronic application.   .  

USF Office of National Scholarships (ONS):  A USF site with information on scholarships beyond USF for which you may be eligible.  The ONS can assist students with their search for outside scholarsihps, including the Gilman International Scholarship (available to Pell Grant recipients).

USF Undergraduate Research in the Arts scholarships:   The USF Office of Undergraduate Research provides research scholarships each year to undergraduates who have enrolled in the program.  Students who apply must develop an art or art history project related to their study-abroad experience.  The application deadline has yet to be announced but will probably be in mid-April, 2017.  Students must have committed to the program and paid the deposit on the program fee to be eligible and must be USF Tampa campus undergraduates who will be enrolled during the Fall 2017 semester.  Information on eligibility and how to apply can be found here.   You will also find at this site projects that were developed by students in the Paris 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 programs.   

Students are also encouraged to attend one of the Education Abroad funding sessions which provide a comprehensive overview of how students can cover the cost of a study-abroad program.   A calendar listing the funding sessions can be found here.
Students are encouraged to also invest some time doing a web search for international scholarships.  There are a number of sites which serve as clearing houses for scholarships available to students participating in summer or semester study-abroad programs.   A good place to start is:   http://www.internationalscholarships.com/ and the "scholarships and grants" links on the Paris program website.
