How Can I Fund My Study Abroad?
Vassar believes that education abroad is a valuable academic experience that should be accessible to all students. Financial Aid, including Vassar scholarships, may generally be applied to study abroad program costs. It is still important to consider, though, that many study abroad programs involve expenses in addition to the regular expenses associated with attending the home institution, such as personal spending and travel. The cost of food and daily living expenses may vary significantly when comparing education abroad programs. Therefore, it is important to consult with the Office of International Programs (OIP) and Student Financial Services as you are planning to fund your education abroad experience. In addition to accessing financial aid, including Vassar scholarships, you may be eligible for a number of outside study abroad scholarship opportunities. The OIP, in partnership with the Fellowships office, is eager to support you in such applications.
