College & Departmental Grants
In addition to grants from UC International, a number of colleges, departments, and other units offer financial assistance for students to participate in an education abroad experience. For the three opportunities listed below, no additional application is required; if you have applied for a UC International grant and meet the qualifications listed below, you will also be considered for a college grant. Students who do not fit into any of the categories listed above should consult with their academic advisors and home colleges and departments.
College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services
The College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH) is proud to support undergraduate CECH students interested in pursuing study abroad opportunities. As a result of more and more students interested in studying outside of the United States and the educational value that can be obtained, CECH is offering grants that are available to assist with the financial side of this experience. Student grants are awarded based on merit, financial need and length of study abroad experience. No additional applications are necessary, however interested students must complete an application for a student grant with International Programs. For more information, contact Ric Stackpole.
