Some scholarships are for study abroad, but others are meant to assist you financially. Find out what might be the best and apply; one thing is certain—if you don't apply, you will not win these awards.

Study Abroad

Participating in study abroad is one of the best ways to learn the language and culture you’re studying. You are encouraged to seek opportunities to participate in a study abroad program for at least one semester.


Internships are often essential for success and highly beneficial. They will test your resourcefulness, language skills, and cultural competence, but upon successful completion, you will have an edge over others in today's competitive job market.
