Some funding may be available to help defray the costs of studying abroad in Africa. Some Departments and Colleges will support students wishing to study abroad and it is worth talking to your Department Head or the Undergraduate office in your College about funding possibilities. There are also scholarship funds available through the University Office of Global Programs. You can find a guide to financial aid considerations and a listing of available scholarships here. Note that some of these scholarships are directed specifically to students traveling to non-traditional locations such as Africa.
