Study Abroad Scholarships and Grants
While scholarship awards won’t pay for all of the tuition and program costs related to study abroad, they can help reduce costs signficantly. Award money is applied to the recipient’s UC account, and it defrays program and tuition costs. We encourage all UCBA students who plan to apply to our programs to also apply for some—or all—of the following scholarships!
University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College awards a variety of study abroad scholarships each year to UCBA students who participate in our UCBA programs abroad. While we encourage students from other UC campuses and universities to participate in our programs, non-UCBA students are not eligible for the scholarships detailed below. Information about additional scholarships that might be available to UCBA and non-UCBA students alike can be found on the UC International Scholarships page.
