University of Georgia students who have been awarded federal or state financial aid, including the HOPE or Zell Miller scholarships, or student loans, may use their financial aid to study away on a UGA direct credit or exchange program, as well as through external study away programs which have been approved for transfer credit by the UGA Office of Global Engagement. Eligible students may also work with the Office of Student Financial Aid to potentially update their official "cost of attendance" for the study away term, in order to reflect the full cost of studying away and accurately calculate their financial aid package. Further information about funding can be found here. In addition, students may wish to explore merit and need-based scholarships and fellowships to help support the cost of a study away program. Further information about scholarships is available below.

Office of Global Engagement General Scholarships are sponsored by the UGA Office of Global Engagement or administered by the OGE on behalf of another organization. They include a variety of merit and financial-need-based, and some program-specific opportunities.

UGA Sponsored and UGA Program Specific Scholarships are sponsored by specific UGA StudyAway programs or academic departments for overseas study or research. They are often specifically for UGA students studying away on faculty-led or residential center programs.

National Scholarships are both merit and need-based for overseas study and are open to students across the U.S. who are studying away. They are not specific to any location or particular program.

Country/Region Specific Scholarships are for students studying away in a particular region or country.

Graduate Level Scholarships are available for graduate students to study or do research away.

Non-UGA Scholarships are for students attending Non-UGA programs that are specific to that group of programs.
