Financial Planning 

“There is definitely funding and scholarship opportunities out there so search for them! They’re definitely worth it.”

– Summer 2015 internship abroad student

International Programs in Engineering strives to make sure that every student can go abroad. The key is to investigate early! Funding is available, but deadlines and requirements vary; explore funding options at the same time as you investigate programs.


Office of Financial Aid

Most UM-awarded financial aid—grants, scholarships, loans—may be used toward the cost of study abroad programs. Speak with an advisor in the Office of Financial Aid to determine what kind of financial aid funding you will receive for an IPE program. (And what might be available for Beyond UM programs).
