To support the international education of Carlson undergraduate and graduate students, the University of Minnesota and the Carlson School offer study abroad scholarships and financial aid packages. If you're interested in studying abroad, we encourage you to plan ahead, pick a program carefully, apply for scholarships well in advance, and complete your financial aid paperwork on time.
Carlson students participating in Carlson Global Institute (CGI) or the University of Minnesota Learning Abroad Center programs are eligible for need-based scholarship and merit-based scholarship. Carlson students may receive one need-based study abroad scholarship during their academic career. Students who have already received a need-based award are still eligible for merit-based awards.
For full consideration, apply by the deadline on or nearest to your program application deadline. If you miss the priority deadline, submit your scholarship application by the next application cycle deadline (see chart below).
