University of Georgia students who have been awarded federal or state financial aid, including the HOPE or Zell Miller scholarships, or student loans, may use their financial aid to study abroad on a UGA direct credit or exchange program, as well as through external study abroad programs which have been approved for transfer credit by the UGA Office of International Education. Eligible students may also work with the Office of Student Financial Aid to potentially update their official "cost of attendance" for the term abroad, in order to reflect the full cost of studying abroad and accurately calculate their financial aid package. Further information about funding can be found here. In addition, students may wish to explore merit and need-based scholarships and fellowships to help support the cost of a program abroad. Further information about scholarships is available below.
