Study Abroad Grants

Description: The Communication program is proud to support undergraduate and graduate Communication major 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, the Communication program is offering scholarships 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.
