UWF Foundation Study Abroad Scholarship

The Office of Diversity and International Education and Programs is happy to announce opportunities for Summer Study Abroad. Summer experiences offer a chance to study for a shorter term and for less money than traditional semester-long programs. Students have the opportunity to earn UWF credit while studying in another country and experiencing a new culture. Applicants for Study Abroad Programs must have a minimum 2.5 GPA; some programs require a higher GPA.

The complete list of programs is available on the UWF Study Abroad website at http://uwf.edu/studyabroad/.

Summer programs have the same requirements for eligibility and application as fall/spring exchanges. Application materials and deadlines vary and additional items may be required for some programs. Students must apply through the Office of Diversity and International Education and Programs. All participants must attend an orientation before they leave UWF for their abroad experience.
