Chatham has received funding from the Institute of International Education (IIE) to award up to 25 first-year Pell eligible students with funding for a US passport to study abroad. Pell eligible Chatham students with 0-29 earned undergraduate credits can submit an application.
What is study abroad?
Study abroad is an opportunity to pursue an educational program in a foreign country. Study abroad is available for students in every field of study and the length of these opportunities varies – Chatham students participate in study abroad and internship abroad programs ranging from short-term programs of just a few weeks to spending a whole academic year abroad. Students receive academic credit toward their undergraduate degrees through successful completion of these programs abroad.
What options are available? Is there funding to study or intern abroad?
To review Chatham’s Education Abroad and Field Experience opportunities, please see our website. Chatham students may also study or intern abroad on non-Chatham programs provided they meet Chatham approval criteria.
Many scholarship opportunities are available for eligible students. All Chatham undergraduates can receive a $1200 study abroad voucher to use toward any credit-bearing international experience. Additional funding is available for students pursuing an International Studies Certificate.
