UI International Programs Scholarships

Scholarship support is the most tangible expression of the university's commitment to increasing the number of students who study/conduct research abroad. Different sets of merit-based scholarships and need-based scholarship grants are available to students studying abroad for a semester/academic year and for students studying abroad during the summer/winter sessions (or other short periods of time). There are also diversity and other UI scholarships, and several significant external awards that support study abroad.
