Financing Study Abroad

The Global Education Office provides students with resources for scholarships, financial aid and other financing options!

Global Education Grants
Ashland University encourages and supports students who wish to add a credit-bearing global dimension to their academic program. A limited number of grants are available to qualified students on a competitive basis. Most are awarded based on a combination of financial need and academic achievement.

Additional Scholarships
The Global Education Office has compiled an extensive database of external scholarships offered to students interested in studying abroad. Typically, for a study abroad experience to qualify for these scholarships, the student must earn at least six credits.

Financial Aid
Federal and State Aid may be available for study abroad if: you are eligible for aid, the study abroad program meets established criteria and the Office of Records and Registration has pre-approved the credits. Gift Aid: Federal Pell Grant (need-based); Ohio Opportunity Grant (need-based); Global Education Grants. Loans: Federal Stafford Loans; Parent Loans for undergrad students; Private Alternative loans. Private educational loans are available from numerous lenders.

Exploring creative fundraisers is worthwhile. Students have earned $200-$2,500 by selling homemade items or hosting a fundraising event.
