Finding funding for your study abroad excursion can seem challenging, however, not impossible. There are a number of resources at your disposal. It is important to research carefully and EARLY to secure appropriate funding. Remember, the more you apply, the greater your chances are for funding your study abroad experience. There are four categories: GEO Scholarships, Mason Scholarships, Fellowships, and External Scholarships.

The Global Education Office (GEO) organizes a wide range of international study, research, service, and leadership opportunities for the George Mason community. Study-abroad activities include international programs for undergraduates, graduates, and professionals seeking knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the culturally diverse society of the twenty-first century. Currently, GEO manages more than 150 international programs in over 60 countries: programs during the winter and summer breaks, semester and year-long programs, intensive language courses, and international internship opportunities.
Are you planning international travel that is university-sponsored or related but is not part of a GEO study abroad program? If so, register your travel with MasonGPS! Students pursuing independently arranged international educational travel experiences, such as internships, independent study, service learning, or dissertation research, must register their travel through this system. This ensures adequate insurance protection, timely notification, and institutional support in the event of a travel emergency or international crisis.
