Fund Your Study Abroad Program
 
  
Financial Aid
 
FIU Students on FIU Programs:
 
 
Each student who wishes to use financial aid must complete the FAFSA form, found on the web at http://finaid.fiu.edu/ . Each student’s eligibility for financial aid is determined by the information submitted on their FAFSA form, including their income, their parents’ income, etc. The FIU Financial Aid Office (located in PC 125) has all the information you may need to start the FAFSA application process.
 
 
FIU students who are participating in ISE or FIU Study Abroad programs may use all of the aid available to them for their study abroad program.  This will include state or institutional scholarships as well as federal pell grant, student loans, and all other financial aid items.  Students may also use their Florida Pre-paid benefits to pay for the tuition portion of their study abroad programs. 
 
  
Important Tips:
 
  • The national priority deadline for filling out your FAFSA for the upcoming academic year is March 1st.   
                                                                                                                                   
  • While on your study abroad program, your financial aid will work the same way in which it works while you are on campus.  You are required to maintain full time enrollment status in order to be eligible for the full amount of your financial aid award.    
                                                           
  •  Your study abroad programs may run on academic calendars that are different from the FIU academic calendar.  Please keep in mind that your financial aid will disburse in accordance with the FIU academic calendar regardless of the program in which you are participating.      
     
  • If you are participating in a Summer study abroad program and you are planning to use some of your summer financial aid to help cover your expenses, please keep in mind that for most programs you will need to pre-pay (pay out of pocket) your program fees and then wait for your summer aid to disburse in order to receive any refund monies that are due to you for the Summer.      
                                                                                                                                     
  •  Summer aid is awarded in late Spring and disbursed in accordance with the summer FIU academic calendar.  Summer is treated as the third semester in the academic year. As such, eligibility for most grants has likely run out, however, a student may have eligibility for a student loan. The amount of the loan will depend on the class level (i.e., freshman, sophomore, etc). Pre-paid tuition may apply to study abroad programs in any semester.    
            
  •  Study Abroad programs are credit-bearing.  This means that your academic performance on the program may affect your eligibility to receive financial aid as you are required to maintain the same academic progress as you would if you were to be enrolled in regular FIU courses.  
                          
  • If you have already been accepted to participate in a study abroad program and you need assistance or have questions regarding your financial aid, please contact our office immediately at (305) 348-1913 or edabroad@fiu.edu and we will work directly with financial aid to assist you with this matter. 
 
 
FIU Students on FIU Approved Programs:
 
  
If you are participating in a study abroad program offered by another institution and you are planning to use your financial aid, please keep in mind the following important tips:
 
  •  You must schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor in the Office of Study Abroad to discuss your study abroad plans and to initiate an approval process for your program.   
                             
  • Depending on the kind of program in which you are participating, your aid may or may not travel with you.                                                                                                                                     
  • If you are receiving an institutional scholarship (FIU scholarship) and you plan to participate in a semester or academic year program through another institution, you will permanently lose your scholarship.                                                                                                              
  • If you are currently receiving Florida Pre-paid benefits or Bright Futures and you plan to attend a study abroad program offered by another state institution, that institution will determine the applicability and/or your eligibility to receive the aid.                                                               
  • If you have applied to go on a study abroad program through a US institution outside of the state of Florida, your state aid will not apply but you may be able to utilize your federal grants and student loans.                                                                                                             
  • If you are planning on enrolling directly at an institution abroad for your study abroad experience, more than likely none of your aid will be able to travel with you on the program.  
                                    
  • Under all circumstance, in addition to meeting with an advisor in our office, you will need to complete a Consortium Agreement (financial aid) as well as a Course Pre-approval form so that you are able to provide proof to financial aid that you will be receiving academic credit towards your degree for the work that you are completing abroad.  Our office will provide you with both documents when you are approved for your program. 
  
  
NON-FIU Students on FIU Study Abroad Programs
 
  
All NON-FIU students who wish to come to FIU to participate in an FIU study abroad program may do so by applying directly to the program of interest.  As far as financial aid for Non-FIU students, please keep in mind the following:
 
  • You must consult with your financial aid and study abroad advisors at your home institution to learn about your institution's policies with regards to using aid on study abroad. 
  • If your are eligible to receive aid, your aid will disburse through your home institution and not through FIU
  • For additional information regarding your participation in an FIU Study Abroad Program, please go to: https://ugrad.fiu.edu/studyabroad/Pages/study_abroad_programs.aspx 
 
 
Scholarships:
 
  • Scholarships are a great way to help fund a study abroad program and there are lots out there to choose from. What’s important is that you apply early so that you don’t miss any important deadlines. Most scholarships don’t require you to be accepted or have even applied to a program before submitting a scholarship application, so you can start applying as soon as you’ve made the decision to study abroad. Also, don’t keep all of your eggs in one basket – apply for as many scholarships as you can! Keep in mind that a scholarship doesn’t have to be specifically for study abroad in order to be applied to your program, so keep an eye out for general scholarships too.

The Roothbert Fund Scholarships
The principal focus of the Roothbert Fund is its Scholarships Program, through which it makes grants for undergraduate or graduate study at accredited colleges or universities. Scholarships may only be applied to study at an accredited institution based in the United States. The Fund seeks candidates who are "motivated by spiritual values," and works to foster fellowship among them.

The Fund is a small, nearly all-volunteer scholarship fund based in New York City, which awards yearly grants and works to foster fellowship among grant recipients. Once a year, the Fund accepts applications for grants, which include essays, transcripts and recommendations. From these written applications, the Fund identifies a group of finalists to be invited for a brief personal interview. On the basis of this interview, the Fund typically selects about 20 new scholarship recipients each year.

Obtaining an application: Because of its staff limitations, the Fund designates a three-month period from November 1st to January 31st each year in which printed applications forms are made available. Because forms are revised each year, applicants are discouraged from copying forms that may be on file with financial aid offices, or have been saved from prior years.
