Scholarships for off-campus study
Though ACM does not offer scholarships or financial assistance for most off-campus study programs, there are numerous outside scholarships available to eligible students. We encourage students to use these resources below–if you are aware of any others, please let us know and we will add them to our list. There are specific scholarships available for the following ACM programs:
Also, students should always contact the Financial Aid and/or Scholarship Office at their campus, for more information about college-specific scholarships or grants which may be available.
STUDY ABROAD SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Diversity Abroad offers twenty $1,000 study abroad scholarships each year. Application deadlines are April 1 (summer), May 2 (fall), and October 15 (spring). Economically disadvantaged students, African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native-American students are strongly encouraged to apply. ACM is a Diversity Abroad member, so students on ACM programs are eligible to apply.
The Gilman International Scholarship offers grants for U.S. undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies abroad. Applicants for the scholarship must be Federal Pell Grant recipients. Students attending programs worldwide may apply, but preference is given to applications for programs outside of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. This competitive scholarship provides up to $5,000 for a semester or year abroad.
Boren Scholarships provide a unique funding opportunity for American students to study world regions critical to United States interests (including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East), but generally underrepresented in study abroad (therefore, Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded). NSEP was designed to provide Americans with the resources and encouragement they need to acquire skills and experiences in areas of the world critical to the future security of the United States. Maximum awards are $10,000 (semester-long programs) or $20,000 (academic year programs).

Fifty $1,000 grants are awarded each year to undergraduates with a minimum GPA of 3.75. Students do not need to be members of Phi Kappa Phi to apply for the grant, but they must attend a college that has an active Phi Kappa Phi chapter.
The Association of Teachers of Japanese Bridging Project offers scholarships to American undergraduate students participating in study abroad programs in Japan. Funding from private foundations and major U.S. corporations has made it possible for ATJ to award 100 scholarships annually to assist students with the travel and living expenses they will incur while studying abroad in Japan for a semester or an academic year. Bridging Scholarship recipients receive a stipend of $2,500 (semester-long programs) or $4,000 (academic year programs).
