Study Abroad Scholarships

The Tippie College of Business Undergraduate Program Office has multiple scholarships for study abroad. Last year, we awarded over $35,000 to the global interns. There are two scholarship deadlines, Nov. 1st and March 1st. You are welcome to apply for awards during one or both of these time periods. Applications do not carry over from one session to the next, so you must re-apply.

There is a $500 early bird scholarship available to the first 10 applicants of the global internship program, so we encourage you to apply early to take advantage of that scholarship. There is no additional application to qualify, just apply for the internship to be eligible.

Scholarships are also available through UI Study Abroad in the form of need and merit based, as well as diversity and outside scholarships. For additional information about those opportunities, visit the Undergraduate Scholarships for Study Abroad page.
