Here are some potential opportunities for study abroad funding this fall:

Generation Study Abroad Travel Grants
Application Opens: Now
Application Deadline:  October 17, 2017

IIE Generation Study Abroad Travel Grants will be made available for U.S. students from a broad range of backgrounds to make it possible for them to participate in academic, internship or service-learning experiences abroad. The scholarship program is intended to diversify study abroad and to encourage students to go abroad who would otherwise not participate in an international experience as part of their college education, especially in support of high-achieving, low-income students. The Travel Grants can be used not only for travel to and from the country of study, but also within the region, enabling students to make the most of their international experience. Visit the IIE Generation Study Abroad Travel Grants website to learn more about the opportunity and program, including eligibility and deadlines/timeline.

Submit your online application by October 17, 2017 for consideration of a Travel Grant to support your participation in a spring 2018 or summer 2018 study abroad program. Send questions to studyabroad@iie.org.
