Selecting the right program for your budget
Since programs vary by duration, accommodation type, cost of living in the host country, etc., the cost of studying abroad varies by program. You can find the estimated cost of each study abroad program under Choose your Program. Your study abroad advisor can help you select a program that fits your budget. If cost is an important factor in your program choice, ask your advisor about tuition exchanges and other low-cost programs. With a tuition exchange, you pay CMU tuition and fees, just as if you were staying on campus!

Financial Aid
Did you know that most financial aid you receive through CMU can be used to pay for your study abroad program costs?  Apply to study abroad through CMU's Office of Study Abroad and your Study Abroad Advisor will give you a program budget to apply for financial aid at CMU.  You may even qualify for additional aid.  See the OFFICE OF SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID's website for more information. ​​


A. Internal (CMU)

In support of their strong commitment to study abroad, many CMU offices and departments offer study abroad scholarships to help you make study abroad a reality. You are also encouraged to talk to your department, faculty advisors and your financial aid advisors about additional scholarship opportunities.

Check the websites of the following CMU units for information on their study abroad scholarships:
