Resources for Funding a Study Abroad Program

A number of resources are available on the web to help students and families plan their finances for a study abroad program. While these resources are not created or maintained by High Point University, they can be a good place to start collecting information. It is always wise, however, to discuss your plans with a counselor in the Office of Financial Planning. 

 

Working Abroad

You currently may work on or off campus to help with finances, but working while studying abroad is not as simple as working while at HPU.

Immigration policy governs work, paid and unpaid internships, and volunteer experiences. Policies differ among countries. Consult the Visa Information page as well as the consular website of the country of interest, as these policies are updated without notice.

As a general suggestion, you should not plan to work for pay while on your study abroad program.

 

Online Resources

The following list is not comprehensive. You may find additional information through simple online searches. Please consider these resources as tools to assist you in the research process, remembering that some aid may be limited to location, language, field of study, etc. It is advisable to discuss your plans with a counselor in the Office of Financial Planning.
