Summer Programs

Not quite sure if you would like to spend a full semester abroad? A summer program is a great way to get just a taste of study abroad. Summer programs are also a good option if you are not able to fit semester or academic year study abroad in to your specific program. You may participate in a summer program as early as the summer following your first year.

Scholarships for University of Rochester Faculty Education Abroad Programs

University of Rochester Scholarships

The University offers a variety of need-based, merit-driven scholarships to students who participate in credit-bearing faculty-led programs.  All students admitted to these programs will be considered for a scholarship on the basis of need, merit, and the program application’s personal statement; no separate application is required. 

Other Scholarships

There are many scholarships and funding sources, both need and merit-based, for education abroad, and we encourage you to apply. Visit our Scholarships page for more information.
Do not wait until the last minute to research what you may be eligible for, as scholarships are competitive, and will not be awarded for poorly-written applications. Scholarships for short-term and summer programs, and for international students, are limited, so it’s especially important to begin looking for scholarships sooner, rather than later.  
Applications may require a copy of your official transcript, essays or personal statement, letters of recommendation, and financial aid information.
