Study Abroad Grants, funded by the state of Wisconsin and awarded by the Center for International Studies, Education Abroad Office, are awarded to students who have been enrolled in a course of study the semester prior to studying abroad; it is also open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Freshmen may begin to plan for their study abroad experience by visiting the Center for International Studies and may participate in a Winterim/Summer/Semester program after being enrolled and after having completed one semester. Seniors may apply for fall or Winterim programs prior to graduation.
To be eligible for a CIS Travel Grant, a student must apply to an established/approved study abroad program which includes: 1) UW-Parkside programs; 2) UW-System programs; 3) Third Party Provider programs; and 4) other accredited programs approved by the CIS-Education Abroad Office. Students enrolled in a Master’s program or enrolled for a 2nd program of study are not eligible for Travel Grants. However, students may be eligible for loans and other scholarships.
For financial aid purposes, students planning to participate in summer study abroad programs must carry at least 6 credits. For semester programs, the student must carry at least 12 credit hours. Winterim programs will usually be 3 credit hours.
For all programs, academic requirements will be reviewed to ensure credits earned at the host university will apply toward the student's major, minor or general coursework.
