Financial Assistance for Study Abroad Programs
The Office of Financial Aid will award aid based upon the estimated cost of a student's study-abroad program according to the following guidelines:
- Most non-institutional financial aid (federal, state, corporate, etc.) will apply to all approved programs; however, most grants and scholarships are unavailable for summer study.
- Non-institutional aid, such as student and parent loans, may be adjusted if the cost of the study-abroad program is different than the cost of William Jewell.
- Federal work study does not apply to study abroad, but may be replaced by loans for eligible students.
- Non-institutional aid may apply to only one study-abroad experience.
- For 2013-14, the Study Abroad Financial Assistance Committee will review each study abroad application and estimated FAFSA and will construct a financial assistance package based on financial need, academic record, how well the program fits the student's plan of study, and availability of funds. The minimum institutional grant for 2013-14 will be $2,000.
- Beginning with study abroad in fall 2012, all institutional financial support for study abroad will be managed through the Journey Grant program. Study-abroad students may apply for Journey Grant funding through the Journey Grant application process.
