Funding for Internships

Applying for scholarships, stipends and financial aid can make your internship abroad affordable and possible. Funding resources vary based on whether you select a credit-bearing or non-credit bearing program. Know what resources are available to you before you select your program. Plan early and talk often with your program coordinator to understand your program costs and to map out how you will finance your experience.
