Who Can Apply: Buffs Abroad Scholarships can only be used by students going on official/approved CU-Boulder study abroad programs (note that Leeds FGX programs do not qualify, but funding is available through Leeds). Scholarships are awarded primarily on the basis of demonstrated financial need, as described below. The definition of financial need is fairly broad, so if you have some financial concern, we encourage you to apply. If you qualify for one of the special scholarships (such as those awarded to specific majors or locations) your application will be evaluated based on a combination of need and merit.
- If you haven’t already, open an application for your study abroad program (not the list of programs above that are ineligible for rolling scholarship decisions). Do NOT proceed with the scholarship application until you have met with a Study Abroad Advisor to open an application. For instructions/information on applying to a program, visit the Applying webpage (for programs).
- Begin the online Buffs Abroad scholarship application, and then click the ‘How to Apply’ button. Follow the next steps.
- You will be asked to complete four short-answer essay questions, and then submit your application. Once you submit the application you have no further steps (you do not need to notify our office). You will be prompted to login and view your decision once your application has been reviewed.
Deadline: September 15, 2015
