Scholarships & Funding


Below are scholarship and funding considerations categorized by the sponsor / sponsor type. Deadlines, eligibility, and program requirements vary per scholarship. Students are also encouraged to talk with their department and the department (or organization) leading the program to inquire about additional funding. This is a great starting point but is by no means comprehensive. Students should do their own research to find supplemental scholarships they may be eligible for.

*Please Note: Being awarded funding in no way guarantees acceptance into a Samford Abroad program. Visit abroad.samford.edu for more information regarding eligibility, application requirements, evaluation processes, and more.
