There are many ways to help fund your study abroad program. Below you will find information about NKU scholarships, external scholarships, and financial aid.
Please note that most study abroad programs are assessed a $35 study abroad fee, which appears on a student's bill during the study abroad term.

Student financial aid can be applied to pay for the tuition of a study abroad program that is both credit-bearing and approved by our office. Students receiving scholarships with a study abroad stipend may apply that stipend to any credit-bearing, approved program.
Exactly how your aid may be applied will depend upon your program and the time of year during which you study abroad. Be aware that in order to receive federal financial aid over the summer, students must be enrolled in at least six credit hours. Thus, if you are participating in summer study abroad but are only taking three hours, you will either have to register for another three credit hours at NKU, or forego your summer federal financial aid.
By setting up your own site, you can ask friends and family for small donations while sharing with them the details of your proposed study abroad program.
