• Financial Aid for Study Abroad Programs

    Financial aid is available to fund a study abroad experience. The types and amount of aid depend on the study abroad program and individual student eligibility.

    Programs through Monmouth

    Most of the financial aid that you would normally receive to cover your tuition and room and board is applicable to Monmouth's fall and spring semester study abroad programs:


    If you are otherwise eligible, you may receive federal and state grants and loans, alternative loans, and a Monmouth academic award for the semester you are abroad. Athletic funding and tuition remission may not be used for study abroad. You are also able to apply for additional loans to cover expenses beyond tuition and room and board. Students wishing to receive financial aid for the summer semester programs at Lorenzo de' Medici and Cádiz are only eligible to receive Stafford loans and alternative loans.

    Please contact Sandra Crawford at scrawfor@monmouth.edu if you have additional financial aid questions about participating in a study abroad program through Monmouth.

    CCIS Programs

    Students participating in CCIS programs during the academic year may be eligible to receive federal grants and loans, as well as alternative loans. Students participating in these programs are not eligible to receive state grants, tuition remission, athletic grants, and/or Monmouth academic awards during their semester abroad. Students wishing to receive financial aid for the summer semester are only eligible to receive Stafford loans and alternative loans.

    Please contact Nancy Hanson at nhanson@monmouth.edu if you have any additional financial aid questions about participating in this sort of study abroad program.

    Other Study Abroad Programs

    In order to receive financial aid for a study abroad program through another college or university, you would need to fill out a consortium agreement between Monmouth and the other school.
