Study Abroad Scholarship Opportunities

Honors College Study-Abroad Scholarship -- APPLY HERE!

Honors College students routinely study abroad, exploring in situ a number of great texts, traditions, and ideas, experiencing holistic education under the tutelage of Baylor professors, and enjoying the camaraderie of outstanding peers. The Honors College sets aside scholarship resources to help defray the expense especially of summer study abroad programs. Applications are reviewed on the basis of need and merit, with a high premium placed upon the applicant's case that studying abroad significantly advances his/her academic purposes.

NOTE: This scholarship is not generally awarded for fall- or spring-semester study abroad programs. Priority is granted to summer study abroad programs. Once awarded, an applicant may receive the scholarship for additional study abroad programs if he/she applies again; however, the award is for study abroad only and is not automatically renewed.

Allison Family Foundation Scholarship

Beyond scholarships offered by the Honors College for study abroad programs, current students also should consider the Allison Family Foundation Scholarship. Priority is given to Spanish or Latin American Studies majors/minors participating in Baylor in Denia, Baylor in Madrid, or other Baylor-directed or Baylor-affiliated study-abroad program in Spanish. For more information about the Allison Family Foundation Scholarship, please contact Ms. Rachel Rooney in Modern Languages & Cultures.
