All students enrolled in the SPAN program are eligible to receive SPAN-funded scholarships. Scholarships can be awarded only because of the generosity of SPAN alumni. In order to be considered for scholarships, a student must complete the application.
Scholarships are intended to reduce the financial burden on a student and help close the gap between the program costs and the means an individual student may have to fund the trip.
Outside scholarships and financial aid
Financial aid may be available to Hamline students because the course includes six credits – the minimum amount required to use aid in summer. Students from other schools should talk to their financial aid office at their university or college to learn if and how they can apply financial aid to the SPAN program.
Students are also encouraged to seek out additional scholarships to help fund their trip. To learn more about funding a study abroad trip:
