Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial Aid

Because the Academic Program Abroad is a part of Bowling Green State University, financial aid that could be applied to study on the BGSU campus can be applied equally to study in the program abroad. Outside financial aid for Academic Year Abroad programs is handled through the University Office of Financial Aid.


In addition to outside sources of financial aid, certain special scholarships are available for Bowling Green State University students.   is The Janet M. Shanklin Memorial Scholarship awarded each year to selected students participating in the full academic year program (both fall and spring semesters) plus one scholarship is awarded to a student participating in the summer program available here. Recipients must submit a statement on their reasons for participating in the program and are selected by a committee from BGSU Romance and Classical Studies Department. Second, travel grants for students participating in any program are available through the International Education Committee of BGSU. Information on grants and additional education abroad scholarships are available here.
