Yes. See our Scholarships page for a list of available scholarships and applications.
Keep in mind that scholarships for study abroad are competitive and will not cover the entire cost of the program. You should make alternate plans for paying for your program in case you are not awarded a scholarship.
The cost depends on the program you choose.
- For Panther Programs, the program fee typically includes tuition, housing, travel insurance, and some course-related excursions. Inclusions may vary; please visit the program brochure page for pricing details.
- Inclusions for Pitt-Recognized programs vary by provider; please visit the provider’s website for pricing information. You will not be responsible for paying Pitt tuition in addition to the provider’s tuition.
- For Exchange Programs, you are responsible for paying normal Pitt tuition and fees directly to the University of Pittsburgh. Other fees and pricing details vary by program; please visit the program brochure page for details.
Charges for Panther Programs and Exchange Programs are posted to your student account in PittPAY and are due according to the standard Due Date Schedule. If you expect to aid disbursements that will create a credit balance on your student account, BE SURE you sign up for eRefunds in PittPAY so you get your money in 2-3 business days. Without eRefunds, you will have to wait 10-14 days for a paper check mailed to your home address.
Beyond the Study Abroad Fee, you will not pay anything to the University of Pittsburgh if you study abroad with a Pitt-Recognized Program. Your program provider will bill you directly.
