Boston University Students

Summer Programs

For summer term only, Boston University students are eligible to apply for grants or scholarships directly through Boston University Study Abroad. Awards are made based on need and/or merit and typically range from $500-$2,000. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

Application for Summer Grants and Scholarships

Fall and Spring Programs

During fall and spring semesters, Boston University students are eligible to receive most forms of financial aid that are available at BU (some awards such as work/study grants may not transfer) and students should seek information and apply for those funds as they normally do, through Boston University Financial Assistance.

Special Padua Awards

One exception to the summer-only rule is for BU students attending a Padua Program. BU students participating in the Padua, Italy, semester or academic year programs (not summer) are eligible to apply for Padua Scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,500. This is the typical award range; actual awards may differ. Students who are accepted to a Padua program will be forwarded application forms from the Program Manager for Padua at Boston University Study Abroad.

Other Scholarship Opportunities

Please note that there are many other scholarships specifically for study abroad that you may apply for as well.
