Third-party Provider Scholarships

Many third-party providers offer scholarship funding for specific programs and fields of study.  Check the provider website and contact them for specifics. 


US Government Scholarships

The United States federal government offers a number of scholarships primarily for students studying in countries where the US would like to develop greater familiarity and expertise (typically not western Europe or Australia).  Particularly for students with well-developed and concrete study abroad goals, these are realistic and substantial funding options.  Such scholarships include the Benjamin Gilman International Scholarship (for Pell Grant recipients only), Boren Awards for International Study, the Freeman Awards for Study in Asia, and Fulbright awards.  The scholarships are highly competitive and students should begin early to prepare a thorough and well-edited submission.  Contact the IPO early for further information.
