Financial Aid and Scholarships
Students often assume it is more expensive to study abroad than to remain on UT's campus. However, many education abroad destinations offer lower tuition and cost of living! Furthermore, several funding opportunities exist between financial aid and scholarship resources. UT Students pay only the cost associated with their program abroad and a UT Travel and Insurance fee. Students will not pay UT tuition, fees, or room & board during their time abroad.
Make sure to budget wisely and plan for how to afford to live abroad.
Students should meet with a financial aid counselor to determine how they will apply financial aid towards an education abroad program. In most cases, students can apply Federal Student Aid and Bright Futures Scholarships to education abroad experiences.
