All Chatham undergraduates can receive $1,200 toward any credit-bearing experience abroad. The Study abroad voucher is available one time to all full-time undergraduate students who have earned at least 30 undergraduate credits. You don’t need to apply for the voucher – it will be awarded to all eligible students for the term in which they study abroad, reducing the amount owed by $1,200.
Students completing an International Studies Certificate and 6 or more credits of study or internship abroad may be eligible for an additional $1,800 in international certificate funding (verification required).
Chatham offers two experiential learning scholarships, the Glenda Rich DeBroff and Sally Mercke Heym scholarships which students may apply for toward a summer international experience.

Applications (see link for application) for Chatham summer experiential learning scholarships are due to email@example.com by 2/28/23.
