Additional Scholarship and Grant Sources

Be sure to research banking options

Opening a foreign bank account or researching U.S. banks' policies can pay off. Visa and MasterCard charge a 1% conversion fee on international transactions and most banks add a transaction fee on top of that.  Depending on your card, you'll pay a total fee of 2% to 3% of your purchase each time you buy something.

Depending on the bank, the same international transaction fees could also apply to ATM withdrawals.

You can also apply for a bank loan and some online sites are also available:

Fundraising for your Study Abroad Trip

There are many options for students to raise money to help offset the costs of travelling abroad.
