Study Abroad Scholarships

  • Generally, for your financial aid to be "portable" to a study abroad program, you must carry at least a half-time load at the foreign institution and receive credit for the program toward your degree at your home institution.
  • The study abroad program must advance you toward a degree and not merely be providing an enrichment experience.
  • There may also be other eligibility restrictions, depending on the financial aid program, but usually you will be able to take your Title IV funding (Pell, Stafford and PLUS) overseas with you.
  • Students who participate in study abroad programs that cost more than the usual cost of attendance for their school may be able to get an increase in their Federal Pell Grant to help cover those costs.
  • TWU will not deny you any federal aid just because you are participating in a program of study abroad. Institutional aid, however, is subject to the school's own policies.
