Scholarships vary and depending upon the type, may cover many different costs.
For more information on how your scholarship applies to your program, consult the department/organization who hosts the scholarship.
Here are some other tips:
Once you find them, apply, apply, apply! Not as many people apply as you might think because they are intimidated by their perceived competition.
If you are determined to study abroad and you need the money…remember - you certainly won’t get the award money if you DON’T apply!
Apply for multiple scholarships and grants. Once you've completed one application, most of the work is done for the next one…simply tweak your materials to best fit the parameters and you’re on your way.
Don’t be afraid to use the many resources on campus. Many faculty and staff have experience in grant writing and might be happy to look over your application and essay.
