Dietrich College has established its Study/Travel Abroad Grant Program to encourage its undergraduate students to consider pursuing meaningful opportunities abroad by making it more financially possible to take advantage of these experiences.  The program provides support for both traditional study abroad programs, and for non-study abroad experiences such as service learning opportunities, internships, research and conference travel.

Grants are available for both individual students and groups of students who meet the program’s eligibility requirements.
