But how do you pay for it? The idea of funding a semester or year abroad might seem daunting at first. But even if you’re not sure how you might afford a study abroad program, don’t count yourself out quite yet. Study abroad scholarships could be what you’re looking for to help you cover the cost of that international experience. doesn’t want you to give up on your dream of traveling, meeting people from around the world, seeing new places and learning new things. Rather, we want to help make that dream happen. To that end, we’ve put together an annual study abroad scholarship to go towards program costs, if you apply and are selected. This year’s scholarship prize is for $1000.

Remember to schedule your essay well. Don't wait until the last few days to do the research, or you're likely to find all the good books have been signed out already. Don't wait until the last minute to do your writing, because if you discover you're missing a key bit of information, you may not have time to get it. Worse, you might end up feeling ill or having conflicting obligations the night before the essay is due, and no reasonable teacher or professor will give you an extension if you bring them a pathetic excuse such as, "I had to go to work," or "I had a headache." Furthermore, whatever you churn out in the wee hours of the morning is bound to be second-rate at best. Leaving the essay to the last minute is also tempting Murphy to throw in problems such as malfunctioning printers, computer crashes, being out of toner or paper, long lines at the printers on campus, etc. I always aimed to have my essays done one full week before they were due. In some instances, circumstances did prevent completion a week early, but because I had that buffer zone of a week, I never had to hand in something late.
