SEBS Office of International Programs Scholarships

To help offset the cost of study abroad, the Office of International Programs in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences offers summer and winter scholarships. Providing more international learning opportunities is one of Executive Dean Robert Goodman's top initiatives, and this scholarship opportunity is a step in that direction. All SEBS students are eligible to apply for our scholarship.

Summer and winter scholarships will be provided to help defray the cost of the program fee for an international program up to a maximum of $5,000. Individual awards will depend on specific program costs. You must be a Rutgers SEBS undergraduate student at the time of your international experience to be considered for this scholarship.

Semester scholarships will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

All applicants must also apply directly to their study abroad program of choice on the Rutgers Global–Study Abroad's website.
