Financial Aid FAQ's for Study Away
Can I use my financial aid and scholarships for my study away program?
Your ability to use or obtain scholarships and financial aid is heavily dependent on the type of Study Away Program you are participating in. Please see the sub-catagories under Financial Aid to find information specific to your program type.
Are there "additional" grants or scholarships available for study away?
No, there are no additional grants or scholarships available through Concordia College for study away participants. However, you may be able to find independent sources of scholarships through other organizations that foster intercultural exchange. Because these sources are independent, Concordia College Financial Aid and Global Learning will not be able to assist you in your application. Competition is very high for these funds, but internet searches are a great way to start looking. Here are a few examples:
