Funding Opportunities for Study Abroad
There are 3 funding opportunities for student participating on a study abroad program.
1. Financial Aid
Go through the additional loan request process.
- All regular eligibility rules still apply. The Financial Aid Office does not work with grant funding specifically related to study abroad; however, if you have not already reached your allotted budget for the year, you may be eligible for additional loan funding. Please be aware that if you are a DEPENDENT student, additional loans may need to be requested through the Parent PLUS Loan.
- Note: If a study abroad class is added after the census date, your Federal PELL award will not be adjusted to reflect the change in credit status.
The Global Education & Services Office offers a $200 competitive scholarship to students who apply for and participate on a study abroad program. You will find additional information on the process of applying for this scholarship within the Study Abroad Application packet.
3. Start a Payment Plan
Log onto your MyFVTC account to set up a payment plan. This option will allow you to pay your tuition costs over the course of three months rather than in one lump sum.
