National and International Scholarships
Jim Hohenbary is the campus coordinator for those prestigious scholarships that require candidates to be nominated by the University. His office also advises K-State students as they seek to identify and compete for scholarships and other academic prizes that are nationally and internationally competitive. Please contact him for more information about study abroad scholarships. You can pick up a list of selected national scholarships for study abroad in the study abroad office (304 Fairchild Hall).
112 Eisenhower Hall
All Federal funds (loans and grants) are applicable to study abroad by law, where K-State has a program affiliation. In a few cases where students enroll directly, financial aid may not apply. Your study abroad advisor can help you estimate your costs when you choose a program. Almost all scholarships can be used for study abroad except in the very rare case where residence on campus is required.
You must contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance, (104 Fairchild Hall) to work out a financial aid package that suits your needs. The advisors are prepared to work with study abroad needs and problems. You will have to provide the financial aid advisor with a budget for your program that includes program fees and other expenses. For instance, not all program fees cover room and board. Some, but not many, include international travel. You will also have to plan for books and other course materials, as well as for personal expenses. The Study Abroad office has these budgets prepared for you for KSU programs.
Please keep in mind that most loan and grant programs have a maximum amount you can receive during your college career. Financial aid for your study abroad is included within that maximum.
