Funding Opportunities

Studying abroad can be affordable. JSU Global works closely with the Financial Aid Office to ensure that cost is not a barrier for study abroad participation. We also work with students to identify and apply for external sources of funding.  Check with the Study Abroad Coordinator for additional information and advice.

Suggestions for alternate funding methods:

Using your financial aid is always an option for studying abroad. However, fundraising and crowdfunding are awesome ways to offset costs of studying abroad.  Both allow you to make personal appeals to audiences that may want to support your study abroad efforts. Consider more personal funding sources and methods, such as:

  • Local business, religious, and civic groups, like Rotary, Lion’s Club, or Kiwanis
  • High school alumni organizations
  • Local and national chapters of sororities and fraternities

Another alternative for funding sources are crowd funding platforms such as:
