Study Abroad Grants

The College of Arts and Sciences announces the availability of grants to support students who will be participating in UWRF-sponsored or approved international study abroad programs.

Each grant is worth up to $500 and is meant to defray the cost of the study abroad program. While students may request up to $500, the final dollar amount will be determined by the reviewing committee based on the total cost of the program and the student’s financial need.

These grants are made possible by generous gifts of alumni and friends to the College of Arts and Sciences. The number of stipends disbursed in any given year may vary.
