"There are so many scholarship opportunities to receive if you apply for them. Traveling abroad while taking school credit gives you the opportunity to go see different places/cultures while gaining credit, and you can't beat that. I highly encourage anyone even slightly interested to talk to your parents and the study abroad office and see the possibilities."

Funding Your Experience
Using Financial Aid
To be eligible for financial aid, students need to enroll in courses that will apply towards their major requirements at OSU, regardless of the study abroad program. Students must also meet all other eligibility requirements, including but not limited to, satisfactory academic progress, financial need, and minimum enrollment.
In addition to these general campus scholarships, most academic colleges and many departments offer study abroad scholarships as well. Be sure and check with your program for additional funding opportunities!
Each year students from OSU successfully apply for many of these national study abroad scholarships as a way to fund their programs.
