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 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for the 2023-24 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.
