Studying abroad can be very affordable, but like any educational opportunity, it requires planning. Study abroad programs vary in cost, depending on the type of program (Exchange, Co-Sponsored, or Direct Enroll), length of stay (year, semester, summer or spring break) and destination. In order to make study abroad affordable for interested students, Purdue offers many study abroad scholarship opportunities.
- Starting in Spring 2014, any Purdue student accepted to a study abroad program will be eligible to apply for a scholarship through the Study Abroad office. Students participating in semester length programs will be eligible to receive up to $3000 toward their expenses. Students participating in short-term programs will be eligible to receive up to $1000 toward their expenses.

- Students participating in study abroad are eligible for federal financial aid through the Purdue University Division of Financial Aid. Even those students who are not currently receiving aid may be eligible for financial assistance for the period they study abroad.
