Need-Based Scholarships

Need-Based Study Abroad Scholarships
Every year, Rhodes offers a number of Need-Based awards for study abroad programs for the summer as well as for semester-long study. These awards can be for Rhodes, Exchange, and Afffiliated Programs. The scholarships are coordinated by the Buckman Center for International Education in conjunction with the Financial Aid Office.
