Plan Your Budget
Planning ahead and budgeting for your study abroad experience is very important. Try putting away a little extra away each month to help save for your study abroad payments. Students have also been successful using a variety of creative measures. Some ideas include:
- Asking family members, your church or a community organization: Discuss your desire to study abroad! Often family members are more willing to help when they understand this is an educational experience which will help advance your personal, professional and academic goals!
- Fundraising in a group or as an individual: You can start fundraising for study abroad before you are selected by starting a campaign on social media or by simply starting the conversation with your personal networks. Once you are selected for study abroad, some groups have done fundraising as a group through a variety of measures.
