Hirsch Scholarship


The University of Maryland’s Education Abroad Office Scholarship

The University of Maryland’s Education Abroad Office is thrilled to announce a new scholarship opportunity for undergraduate students studying abroad on a University of Maryland exchange program.  UMD has 86 semester or year-long exchange programs with leading research universities worldwide.

 Applicants will be awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $2,500, depending on the location of the host University.  Priority is given to applicants to exchanges in the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America.  Additional funds may be awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. 

 Eligibility & How to Apply - To be considered for a spring 2014 scholarship, students must submit a completed application to a UMD Exchange program and the Education Abroad Scholarship Application by October 1st.  Students who wish to be considered for need-based aid must also file a FAFSA. Awards are contingent on applicant’s acceptance and confirmation into a UMD Exchange program.  Students currently receiving tuition remission or full-tuition scholarships are not eligible to apply.

 Exchange is already one of the most affordable types of study abroad, as students pay only their regular tuition. With this scholarship, study abroad becomes even more accessible. Exchange is also one of the most valuable forms of study abroad. Students will study at some of the best universities in the world, with extraordinary students and faculty, be completely immersed in the host culture, and have opportunities to develop early career networks.
