Scholarships & Finances

At The University of Tulsa, study abroad is a realistic, affordable opportunity for all students. For most students the cost of semester or summer study abroad is equivalent to what they pay at TU – and sometimes even cheaper.

TU has a generous financial aid policy which allows TU scholarships to apply to study abroad tuition. Whether you are a Presidential Scholar or are receiving one of the many other TU scholarships you will be able to apply these to your semester abroad. Students may also use loans to cover several study abroad-related expenses such as airfare and visa fees.

Students should talk with their financial aid advisor in the Office of Student Financial Services to discuss which scholarships will apply to their program abroad.

To help students and families better understand and plan for the costs of study abroad, the Center for Global Education has draft budgets posted for most programs so that students can understand the full cost of their experience abroad. If a budget is not provided, please ask your study abroad for a copy of the program’s budget.

Financing Summer Study Abroad

Just as most students do not receive scholarships during the summer months, most scholarships do not cover the cost of summer study abroad programs. While some outside scholarships are available they are generally limited. For this reason, students should plan on paying the full-cost of their summer experience abroad. In some cases this means that a summer experience costs more than a full semester long program.

Scholarships are available for students who must study abroad during the summer because of their academic program, athletic involvement, or scholarship requirements.

Financing Short-Term Study Abroad

Scholarships are available for students who must study abroad during the summer because of their academic program, athletic involvement, or scholarship requirements.

ADDITIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS

The Center for Global Education as well as many study abroad providers and outside organizations provide scholarships and awards to support students going abroad. Students should discuss financial concerns with their study abroad advisor and check program provider websites for available scholarships.
