UR Study Abroad During Fall or Spring Term

The same types of assistance for which you may be considered during enrollment at Richmond are also available to you for a UR study abroad program during the fall and/or spring terms. Recipients of merit scholarships from Richmond may use their merit scholarships for a study abroad program. Financial assistance may be used for no more than two semesters abroad.

The application process varies by the type of aid for which you are applying:

Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans

The application process for federal direct loans is the same for a study abroad program as it is for enrollment at Richmond. Applications should be submitted at least six weeks prior to the start of the study abroad program. The following applications are required for the 2020-21 academic year.

Note: Students will automatically be offered their academic year loans during the review of their financial aid application. Students will then need to accept and/or decline their loans in Bannerweb.

Study Abroad Scholarships

Study abroad scholarships are available through the department of International Education.
