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 (available mid-March) 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.
