Semester Study Abroad
Whether students opt to pay out of pocket or utilize financial aid to fund study abroad, Austin College expects that students who want to participate in semester study abroad apply for scholarships from external organizations as well as Austin College. The Pre-Departure Checklist asks students to submit a statement of purpose essay and updated resume to the Study Abroad Office to support this endeavor.
Another potential benefit to acquiring scholarships for study abroad, other than funding the experience, is that scholarship and grant awards can be listed on a resume or vitae and shows evidence of a resourceful potential employee!
