UR Study Abroad During a Summer Term

Federal Direct 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 2024-2025 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Summer 2024 Federal Direct Loan Application are required to apply for Summer 2024 loans.

Students who enroll directly with an international school (i.e., who do not go through a domestic host school) are not eligible for financial aid from University of Richmond resources.

Holt Scholarships

Holt scholarships are available for summer study abroad, for a semester or for an academic year. These scholarships are merit-based and awarded for participation in UR's summer and academic semester/year programs in Argentina, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, and Spain. See Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures' list of scholarships for application information.
