Affording a study abroad experience is possible! Studying abroad is not necessarily more expensive than a semester at Boston College. While some programs in large metropolitan areas may cost more than a semester in Chestnut Hill, expenditures for many other programs may be the same or less than at BC.

Prestigious awards, scholarships and grants can help fund your study abroad dreams, learn more about BC and external opportunities and make an appointment to meet with the OIP Scholarship Advisor.
