NIU students looking for money to study abroad have some special opportunities this summer. The Office of the Provost is offering a minimum of $20,000 in travel grants for summer 2011 study abroad programs.
The Provost’s Travel Grant for Study Abroad will award grants in amounts between $200 and $1,000 to students who enroll in summer 2011 study abroad programs for credit through the NIU Study Abroad Office.
An additional $675 from the Zeta Gamma Chapter of Phi Beta Delta has been added to the total pool that is available. These additional funds were obtained from the sale of 2011 calendars filled with stunning images from around the world taken by NIU study abroad students. The Zeta Gamma Chapter is in the planning stages for the 2012 calendar.
Students can obtain applications for the travel grant from the Study Abroad Office. Applications will be accepted through Friday, May 6.
