STUDY ABROAD

Many Honors College students study abroad at some point in their undergraduate years. With careful planning, spending time studying in another country can be successfully incorporated into a student's curriculum. 

UIC's Study Abroad Office stands ready to assist students - from the beginning planning stages, to gaining course credit approval, to securing financial assistance, and more. Check out these videos showcasing Honors College students and others from around the country to learn more about the impact studying abroad can have on a student's life.

Although the cost of being abroad for a summer or semester term is - on average - the same as being a fulltime student and living on campus with a meal plan, there are many funding opportunities to help students offset the cost of studying abroad. These include two Honors College scholarship awards of up to $2,500: the Dean's Study Abroad Scholarship and the Flaherty Scholarship. Some students have been awarded enough scholarship funding to cover the entire cost of a semester abroad. To find out more about all Study Abroad scholarships, click here.
