Financial Aid Resource Center

Our resource center is designed to help you look for financial aid and make your study abroad in China easier and affordable. We offer both a large directory of scholarships which is free for everyone to surf, but with contact information available only to our applicants. In addition, we offer advice and some outside resources.

Minds Abroad Scholarships Directory

Scholarships which can be used on current Minds Abroad Programs
The dozens of scholarships on this first list can be used to fund your
Minds Abroad experience, like the Chinese language program and many others. We share contact information only with students who have applied to our programs first. Once you have applied, we will begin to help you find scholarships that are right for you. We cannot guarantee that you will win these scholarships if you apply for them, but we will help you find scholarships which are suited for you, and will assist you in the application process.

Miscellaneous scholarships with which we will help students tailor an individual program

The scholarships on this second list are for a variety of subjects - ranging from engineering, to social sciences, to natural sciences, and more. We realize that it can be difficult finding a study abroad program, like Chinese language study, to fit these very specific programs. Therefore, Minds Abroad is able to tailor specific programs for you. If you find a scholarship on this list and win the scholarship, let us know and we can create a program to fit your needs. Even if you are not a winner of one of these scholarships but nevertheless want to study a very specialized subject in China, we can help. In either event, just contact Minds Abroad and we can help you tailor a Chinese lesson plan or a program to meet your needs.
 

Minds Abroad Financial Aid Advice and External Links
After you have a clear picture of the program’s costs and your ability to pay them, begin to look for other sources of money. There are a variety of places you can look for outside help:

Federal or state financial aid
Federal financial aid is money supplied through the Higher Education Act of 1965 to assist students in getting a college education. State aid is similar but comes from your state’s tax funds. You may be using financial aid already. If so, you might be able to use that aid to study abroad.

Federal aid can legally be used to study abroad as long as the program you attend has been approved for credit by your home institution.

Institutional, private, and other types of governmental aid for education
You may be receiving other assistance for your education that can be used for a study abroad program. For instance, if you are in an ROTC program or if you receive veteran’s benefits or vocational-rehabilitation benefits, it may be possible to use these funds for study abroad.

Furthermore, as a participant in the Minds Abroad teaching program, you may be able to defer student loans for the duration of your participation in the program for up to three years. Minds Abroad can provide letters of support for deferment requests, but you are responsible for applying directly to your lender(s) for deferral.

Why Study AbroadYour home university
Your home university may award institutional aid including tuition scholarships, a merit award for good grades, etc. Some institutions will not allow such scholarships to be used for programs sponsored by others, but some will. It never hurts to ask.

Most college reference libraries have private funding sourcebooks that list hundreds of scholarships.
