We are dedicated to making study abroad possible for all students.

Our programs are some of the most affordable ones available today. But for many students, studying abroad is still only possible with the aid of financial assistance. The ESC is operated by the CEPA Foundation, which is a non-profit organization committed to funding merit and need-based scholarships.

Students from CEPA Foundation Affiliate Partners are eligible to receive grant funds. Our Ambassador Award Program provides an additional opportunity for all students to receive financial support.

If you currently receive federal, state, and/or campus based aid, please talk with your college or university to find out if it can be applied toward this program.

All Students – CEPA Foundation offers semester and summer scholarships for its programs. Please visit the website for details.

Georgia (GA) Students – The HOPE scholarship can be used toward this program for students who qualify.

West Virginia (WV) Students – Many scholarships are available. Visit the WVU website for details.

CEPA faculty-led students – CEPA Foundation awards a “go again” semester grant to all CEPA faculty-led students. Please visit the website for details.

Additional Financial Support

French Embassy Scholarship  – 20 students will be awarded $2,500 for semester studies in France.

We encourage eligible students to apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. The scholarship provides awards for U.S. citizens who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide. Award amounts are up to $5000 per semester.
