Studying abroad is an investment in your future. Just like any other investment, it requires planning, creativity, and perseverance. Start early!
Common types of funding for study abroad are scholarships/grants, financial aid/loans, and innovation.
Available to Sinclair students who wish to participate in a Sinclair study abroad program. We recommend you apply for the scholarship when you apply for a program. If approved for the program you will be considered for the scholarship.
The Gilman Scholarship is a scholarship sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. Designed to diversify the types of students who study and intern abroad and the places and regions where they study. The scholarship offers awards to U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial reasons.
Please visit the Benjamin Gilman web site to learn more about the program.
Students may receive federal financial aid for study abroad costs if participating in a program for which Sinclair Community College awards academic credit. Federal financial aid awarded to students can often be used to help cover the cost of study abroad. The amount of aid available for study abroad programs varies.
Sinclair does not endorse any particular creative funding resource over another. This list is provided as examples of ways to raise money for your study abroad program. Work hard, be innovative and you can make it anywhere.
