Other Study Abroad Aid

Many Drake Affiliated study abroad programs also offer education abroad scholarships and grants. These may be need or merit-based awards, and require a separate application directly with the Affiliated Partner. The scholarship deadline may be earlier than the study abroad program deadline, therefore, early planning can pay off! Talk to the Education Abroad staff if you have any questions.
