Outside Grant Opportunities

Many study abroad programs have grant programs that can reduce their costs.  Most of the grant opportunities require that you be a participant on the specific study abroad program (IES, CIEE, SIT). However, there are some non-program specific opportunities. If you receive financial aid from Bates, outside grants can be used to cover the work-study and loan portions of your aid package. You retain the remaining money unless your Bates grant and outside grant exceed the “Cost of Attendance.”
