Study Abroad Financial Aid & Scholarships

Don't let sticker shock get in the way of your chance to study abroad. With financial aid, good budgeting, and a little saving, study abroad can be affordable.

Financial aid

If you are an ACC student planning to study abroad through ACC, the financial aid application steps are the same as if you were studying on campus.

However, it is particularly important that you complete your financial aid application early so funds will be available to you before you go abroad. The amount and type of aid will vary depending on the program type and your individual aid package.

Board of Trustees' Scholarship

International Programs seeks to lower barriers to study abroad by offering study abroad scholarships to ACC students with financial need and encourages students underrepresented in study abroad to apply.  See rules.
