Study Abroad Scholarships

Salve Regina does not endorse a specific scholarship database, program or fundraising website and encourages each student to select the resource that best serves his/her financial needs.

Scholarships Offered by the Office of International Programs

Study abroad scholarships aim to diversify students who wish to participate in a semester abroad and the countries/regions where they choose to study. Students who are planning to study abroad for the first time and who hold a minimum GPA of 3.0 are eligible to apply for the following scholarships:

  • Semester abroad scholarships are available through the Office of International Programs (OIP). Multiple scholarship opportunities that are open to eligible semester study abroad students within one application.
  • Brendan McKay Memorial Scholarship in International Studies (spring semester): General scholarship open to eligible semester study abroad students.

Scholarship funds are awarded on the basis of academic merit, financial need, students' demonstrated maturity as responsible members of the Salve Regina community and information included within their completed scholarship applications. Eligible students may qualify to receive more than one scholarship, as selected by the international programs committee.
