ASP Scholarships

We understand there can be financial barriers to studying abroad. We collaborate with our international partners to identify these barriers. Students participating in the American Semester Program have access to country specific, targeted scholarships.

These scholarships are available to students from Belgium, Chile, Columbia, Iceland, the Netherlands, and Sweden. We are also offering a Gap Year Study Scholarship for students participating in a gap year of study through the American Semester Program.
