Scholarships & Funding

Scholarship title
The cost of studying abroad can sometimes be hectic and worrisome.  That's why, as part of a push to encourage and afford the amazing benefits of studying abroad to our students, Stockton University has started a Education Abroad Scholarship Program.  This program offers several different ways for students to earn a scholarship based on different criteria.
Stockton Education Abroad Scholarship
The scholarships offered by Stockton University will appear on the application as Section I and Section II. All students are eligible to apply for the scholarship under Section I. Students eligible for Section II must complete both Sections I and II of the application.

The Office of Global Engagement Scholarship (Section I)

The Office of Global Engagement (OGE) award amounts vary according to the type of travel. For short term faculty led programs, the amounts range from $300 to $500. For semester programs, they range from $600.00 to $1000.00. All students are eligible and encouraged to apply. 

To be considered for an award, you must submit a screenshot of your financial aid package, if applicable, and an essay of 500-750 words demonstrating why you want to go abroad and addressing the following points:
  1. How the abroad experience relates to your personal/professional goals;
  2. How the award will make a difference in your ability to go abroad;
  3. How the experience might positively impact those close to you; and
  4. How you will share your experience with other Stockton students. 

The Stockton University Foundation Scholarship for Education Abroad (Section II)

The Stockton University Foundation Scholarship for Education Abroad is available to students who have a minimum G.P.A. of 3.0 and who are studying abroad for a semester. The award amount is $500.00.
