Study Abroad Scholarships

The Georgia College International Education Center staff advise all students going abroad on the study abroad programs that best meet their needs and the study abroad scholarships that are available to them.

These scholarships require the same 3.0 GPA standard that is required for other GC scholarships. The Assistant Vice President for International Education and the International Education Committee review scholarship application materials and recommend the awards.

International Education Center staff also advises students interested in studying abroad on other available financial assistance:

  1. Federal Aid, which is based solely upon financial need and may be used for any recognized study abroad programs. For programs in which the majority of course work is registered with an institution other than GC, an approved Financial Aid Consortium Agreement must be in place before Federal Aid will be disbursed. Information is available in the Financial Aid Office. Federal Aid may be awarded as grants or loans.
  2. Information on other scholarships is available in the International Education Center.

The Financial Aid Office manages disbursement of all study abroad scholarships and Federal Aid. In addition, the Financial Aid Office establishes the required financial aid consortium agreement with any non-GC program, which certifies the student’s Federal Financial Aid eligibility. Any funds awarded through GC are managed by the Financial Aid Office.
