Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial aid can cover your at-home tuition, which corresponds to your tuition overseas. Any refunds you may receive from financial aid also can be applied toward your study abroad (from the semester before). However, most costs will need to be covered out-of-pocket or via loans.

There are scholarships available to students who are Pell Grant recipients (The Benjamin Gilman Scholarship Award). Plus, the Moraine Valley Community College Foundation offers limited awards.
