Student Standing on one leg with arms raised.

One of the most common myths about study abroad is that it is too expensive. There are program options and financial resources available that keep the costs of studying abroad similar, if not less than, the costs of studying on campus.

Meredith College students have a variety of funding options when it comes to study abroad including loans and scholarships. Financial aid may travel with you and study abroad scholarships are available through the Office of International Programs and national organizations. Study abroad is an academic, personal, and career investment in yourself that requires advanced planning and budgeting.
