ESF Financial Aid

Good news! If you are participating in a semester-long study abroad program, chances are you can remain eligible for most to all of your current financial aid and ESF scholarships! Prior to this being confirmed however, you will need to speak with the Office of Financial Aid to understand how your specific aid package is affected.

ESF Scholarships

ESF Go Pro Scholarship

The Office of International Education and the Digital Storytelling Studio have partnered to offer the Go Pro Scholarship for ESF students participating in experiences abroad. Scholarship recipients will receive the use of a Go Pro camera and equipment during their time abroad, as well as a small stipend.

Students commit to meeting with both OIE and Digital Storytelling Studio (DSS) prior to their departure for equipment training and project workshopping. While abroad, students are required to continue to communicate with OIE and DSS and are encouraged to share their progress with both offices and ask for assistance. Upon return, students will be required to meet again with both OIE and DSS to check in on their project process and overall experience. Students are advised to use the resources of DSS to continue the development, editing, and creation of their finished project. Upon completion, students will submit the finished project to both OIE and DSS. Projects are due by the end of the first semester following the return of the student from the international experience.

ESF Career Fellowships

The Office of Career Services is able to offer fellowships every year to fund a variety of experiences, including internships, projects, and conference attendance. Many students are able to use their fellowship funds for experiences abroad.

While a traditional study abroad program is not eligible for Career Fellowship funding, students have received funding for doing independent research, projects, or internships in addition to their study abroad program. Other options include extending a stay abroad following or preceding a study abroad experience to complete such a project.
