UC International Scholarship

The University of Cincinnati has committed over $800,000 in funds to support students going abroad on approved academic programs. These funds are awarded as the UC International Scholarship.

How to Apply

If you are participating in a faculty-led program, you do not need to apply for the UC International Scholarship. Faculty members apply for the scholarship on students' behalf, and the award amount is noted in program costs.

For all other students,  you can apply for the scholarship as a part of your study abroad application. Look for the UC International Scholarship questionnaire within your application and apply by your program deadline.

By applying for the scholarship, you also agree to complete an outreach project as a condition of accepting your award.
