1. Know your program: academic term, length of program, country or region of destination and field of study.

2. When searching for scholarships, consider that some scholarships are available based on personal and family affiliations, i.e., heritage, religious groups, sexual orientation, region of residence, major field of study, GPA and financial need.

Remember that a scholarship does not have to specifically be a study abroad scholarship. Many general scholarships can still be applied to a study abroad experience through JWU.

Check your local state of residence for grant options. For example, the Rhode Island Foundation has money available for students who are Rhode Island residents, who attended a particular high school or reside in a certain city, etc. There is even a scholarship for JWU athletes from Rhode Island.

The following scholarships are some examples of the funding opportunities that may be available to you:

JWU Scholarships: General Scholarships:
Affiliate and Partner University Scholarships:
Major and Country Specific Scholarships:
