There are a variety of funding opportunities available to support global learning that include awards, fellowships, grants, scholarships, and funds to off-set or fully cover program costs. Some funding may be to support the work/learning of a certain type of program or only for students with specific interests/backgrounds. Other resources are more general and can be used across different types of global learning opportunities. Details and requirements change frequently so students are advised to contact the funding agency directly for more information.
Applications may be easier than you think, and some funding opportunities are underutilized; please research the information below or come to our office to learn more! We also encourage you to take advantage of the various workshops offered throughout the year by the Global Learning Hub, including how to write a successful scholarship application, occasional information sessions on grant opportunities, and so on.
