Study Abroad Scholarships & Grants
While scholarship awards won't pay for all of the tuition and program costs related to study abroad, they can help reduce costs significantly. Award money is applied to the recipient's UC account, and it defrays program and tuition costs. We encourage all UC Blue Ash students who plan to apply to our programs to also apply for some (or all) of the following scholarships!
University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College awards a variety of study abroad scholarships each year to students who participate in our UC Blue Ash programs abroad. While we encourage students from other UC campuses and universities to participate in our programs, non-UC Blue Ash students are not eligible for the scholarships detailed below. Information about additional scholarships that might be available to UC Blue Ash and non-UC Blue Ash students alike can be found on the UC Study Abroad Scholarships page.
