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:

  • Salve Study Abroad Endowment Scholarship - General scholarship open to eligible semester study abroad students
  • Jane Campbell Scholarship in Modern Languages - Open to eligible students who are declared language majors or minors
  • Donaldson Trust Scholarship - Open to eligible students who elect to study abroad in Spanish-speaking countries
  • API Study Abroad Scholarship - Open to eligible students who study abroad with a Salve Regina-recognized API program
  • CIEE Study Abroad Scholarship - Open to eligible students who study abroad with a Salve Regina-recognized CIEE program
  • Brendan McKay Scholarship in International Studies - General scholarship open to eligible spring semester study abroad students with a 2.7 GPA or higher and a passion for outreach and community service in the global community

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 with their completed scholarship applications. Eligible students may qualify to receive more than one scholarship, as selected by the international programs committee. Please note: Not all scholarships are available every semester.

Scholarship applications will be available in each student's ViaTRM traveler profile once he/she has been approved and is committed to a study abroad program.
