Funding & Scholarships

Studying abroad is one of the most enriching experiences of your college career, but many students are
intimidated by the cost. The good news is that students who normally qualify for financial aid can also
apply these awards to their study abroad program fees. We encourage you to meet with a
representative from the Financial Aid Office who can answer your questions about federal aid and
private loans.

Financial Aid

Summer Faculty Led Programs - Meet with a financial aid advisor and start saving funds distributed to you during fall and spring to help pay for your summer study abroad program.

Exchange Programs – Financial aid works well with exchange programs. Students register for courses at DSU, allowing for the use of FASFA funds. Meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss the details.

DSU Scholarships

DSU High Impact Scholarship - Awards of up to $500 to help students fund high impact practices and allow them the opportunity to fully embrace “active learning. active life.”
