Use Your Financial Aid to Study Abroad

Many students don't realize that financial aid can help pay for study abroad. Pell Grants, Stafford Loans and PLUS loans can apply to your IFSA-Butler program.

College grants and scholarships, Perkins Loans, state grants and loans, and 529 plans may also be used for study abroad, but you'll need to ask your home campus financial aid office about their policies for transferring these types of aid.
