Course Travel Funding
The Media School provides scholarships to students in most of its international travel programs, lowering the cost to students. Indiana University offers several programs and methods to help reduce the remaining cost to you.
Media School Study Abroad Scholarships
The Media School offers limited additional funding to support undergraduate scholarships for students who plan to study abroad. Some opportunities are restricted to specific countries, areas of study and financial need. All Media School students who have been accepted into a Media School-sponsored study abroad program may apply.
The Media School has limited additional scholarship funding available to support students participating in the Summer in London program. Some opportunities are limited to specific areas of study and financial need. Awards will be matched accordingly.

The Office of Overseas Study provides many useful links for funding sources, including grants, loans and scholarships from IU and national sources.
The OVPDEMA Study Abroad Scholarship is a need-based scholarship supporting minority student participation in study abroad programs by assisting with the costs associated with international study. Students should have a minimum GPA of 2.5, and must be in good disciplinary and academic standing to receive the scholarship. To be eligible, you must be part of one of the following organizations:
- 21st Century Scholars Program
- Groups Scholars Program
- Hudson and Holland Scholars Program
- Academic Support Center (OVPDEMA-funded tutors only)
- Faculty and Staff for Student Excellence (FASE tutors only)
The Office of Student Financial Aid will work with students individually to determine need. Because travelling abroad increases the cost of attending IU in a given semester, the school will increase the expected cost to attend IU to reflect the additional cost of a travel course. Depending on a student’s personal situation, this may increase access to federal loan, grant or work-study programs.
