Study Abroad Scholarships- Albright College recognizes that study abroad can be financially challenging and offers a range of scholarships to help make this worthwhile endeavor accessible to as many students as possible. Scholarship descriptions, eligibility and the application are below. 

Beall Scholarship for Study Abroad-Recognizing the important role of service-oriented experiential learning generally, and of study abroad in particular, Albright College offers scholarship support to students with financial need but who wish to study abroad on a semester or short term program. The student must participate in an activity that will both help the local community in the host country and increase the student's engagement with the foreign culture. The activity must be an appropriate service-learning course, volunteer project or service-related research or internship experience that is arranged in advance with the program or university abroad. Please see the Beall Scholarship Suggested Programs list for pre-approved programs. Other programs can be approved by the Experiential Learning director. Students must have a minimum 2.75 GPA to apply for the Beall Scholarship.This award was established through the generosity of Robert J. Beall, Ph.D. and Mary Ellen O’Connor Beall, M.S.   
Betsy Kiddy International Study Fund-This scholarship will be used to support student study abroad in South America with preference given to students studying in Chile and Brazil. This merit scholarship is intended for students with two semesters of language study who will pursue intensive language study during their study abroad experience.

This study abroad scholarship is available to all Albright students with financial need and is awarded with preference for students studying in Japan or other East Asian countries. 
Other Need Based Funding may be available. Students submitting a scholarship application will automatically be considered for this funding.
