Funding Your International Experience
Study Abroad and Exchange programs can potentially be expensive, with the additional expenses of travel, insurance, and incidental costs.
For many of John Carroll University’s Study Abroad and Exchange programs, it is possible to apply your financial aid package to the cost of your program. You can contact the Office of Financial Aid to confirm how your financial aid can be applied.
In addition, there are numerous scholarships available from sources outside of the University to support study abroad and exchange programs. These scholarships may be based on financial need, merit, the country or region you wish to study in, the language you wish to study abroad, ethnicity or heritage, or other criteria.
