Please note that in order to apply scholarships to your program abroad, you must register for your term(s) abroad. See an Education Abroad advisor if you have any questions.
UNL and its Colleges and Departments offer scholarships that can be used to help fund your education abroad program. Many students combine several small awards that add up to make a big difference. For information on how to best financially prepare for your time abroad, visit our Financing Your Experience page.
If you already receive scholarships or financial aid at UNL, please check to see if you can extend these awards to help fund your education abroad. Visit the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid for details and registration requirements for your aid.
UNL Education Abroad Administered Scholarships
These scholarships are awarded by the Education Abroad Office and/or an external committee, and have various types of award criteria, including: language learning, financial need, program provider, and country of travel. Students may start scholarship applications prior to acceptance into a program. For more details and to start your online application(s), use the Program Search feature in MyWorld. Complete the Basic Scholarship Application to apply for several awards at one time, including the $1,500 Global Gateway, but don't forget to apply to the programs with their own applications!

UNL College and Departmental Scholarships
UNL Colleges and Departments have a variety of education abroad scholarships and travel grants that are awarded to their students. Please inquire with your college or department administration for more details.
Program Provider Scholarships
If you are traveling on a program through a Provider, make sure to check out the scholarships that are awarded directly from Providers. Often, these scholarships will vary by country, financial need, and other criteria. If your favorite program appears expensive at first, be sure to factor in the amount of aid the provider gives to their students.
Nationally competitive scholarships can also be used to fund your travel abroad during or after your time at UNL. These awards include opportunities for language learning, research, and teaching abroad.
