How do I fund the trip?
Finding money for the trip is always a big question in study abroad. There are several things you can do to make sure you can afford to go (we don’t want you going in to debt for this!)
As we get more ideas and information we will update this page. Keep checking back!
The Money Education Center
TAMU has a Money Education Center, which will help you go through your personal situation and figure out how to fund your trip. Visit money.tamu.edu to get an idea of their services.
To go on our trip, you are required to meet with the money center and make sure you have the funds to travel. You can make an appointment my emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do this before you meet with us for your personal interview.
Agrilife has several scholarship opportunities for students in the college available on a rolling basis. Visit the Study Abroad Scholarship page for more information.
The Study Abroad department has their own list of scholarships. Visit their scholarship page for more info.
It is possible to use some financial aid for your study abroad experience. Visit the study abroad financial aid page for more info.
Sometimes its just not enough to get scholarships or financial aid for your trip–sometimes you need to raise some extra funds. Here are a few ideas on how to do that. If you have an idea on how to get some extra money, or would like to work with other students on fundraising, let me know and we can organize some things. I will update this section as I get new ideas.
