Financial Aid, Scholarships, and Grants
Visit the AEA Scholarships and Financial Aid page for information on how your aid may apply to our study abroad programs, as well as resources for scholarships and grants towards study abroad.
In addition to our NEW Irwin Abrams & Paula L. Spier Study Abroad Scholarship, outside scholarships can be of great help. In the past, students on AEA programs have successfully received the Gilman International Scholarship for up to $5,000. The application deadline for this substantial award is March 1st.
We strongly recommend that students begin the scholarship and grant application process as early as possible, as these deadlines may differ considerably from AEA deadlines.
Each year, AEA staff work with students and, in many cases, their home institutions to ensure that the opportunity to study abroad is accessible, and affordable. AEA Asst. Directors are happy to advise students about scholarships and grants towards study abroad.
