Study Abroad Stipends

The College of Education and Professional Studies announces the availability of stipends to support students who will be participating in UWRF-sponsored or approved international study abroad programs.

Each stipend 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 stipends are made possible by generous gifts of alumni and friends to the College of Education and Professional Studies. The number of stipends disbursed in any given year may vary.

Students should be aware that these stipends will affect their financial aid formula for the semester in which the award is made.
