Who would say “no” to free money? In addition to St. John’s
provided study abroad grants, external scholarships,
and work-abroad opportunities, students will find that most
(if not all) of their financial aid—including state and federal
grants, and most government and private loans and scholarships—will
“travel” with them. In fact, with the help of additional financial
aid, some students have actually spent less on a semester
abroad then they would on our NYC campuses.
The links below highlight application-based scholarship
opportunities, but you should think of your existing St. John’s
financial aid—and any additional study abroad grants you’d receive
toward a semester abroad—as the “base” for determining how much
study abroad will really cost you and your family. For further
information, including making a direct comparison between
studying abroad and studying in NYC, please contact our colleagues
in the Office of Student Financial Services: Rosemary Encarnacion on the
Queens campus or Theresa Cantarella on the
Staten Island Campus.
Students from other U.S. universities should also contact their
home institution's financial aid office, as well as our
Visiting Student financial aid page, for specific information
on the type of aid available to each individual.
Past Students have found these scholarships especially
helpful, and you may too!
