Financial Aid: You may use federal and state financial aid for which you are eligible to help pay the costs of the programs.
Scholarships: One of the university’s strategic initiatives includes helping our students gain access to international experiences to ensure that they are prepared for success in a global society and economy. To foster this access, Dick and Jill Burdette have established the Burdette Global Scholarship Fund to provide scholarship assistance to students with limited financial resources to travel abroad. The Burdette Global Scholarship will be managed by the TWU Travel Committee made up of members of the university’s administrative staff and faculty. This fund may be used to offset the cost of international flights, room and board for undergraduate students who are traveling abroad, and other related expenses. Five scholarships of $1,000 each are available for each academic year.
Pell Grant recipients who wish to participate in opportunities that last at least four weeks are encouraged to apply for the Gilman Scholarship. More information about this scholarship can be found on the Institute for International Education website.
Those studying language abroad may apply for funds given in memory of former language professor, Lynne Gylani. The Lynne Gylani Language Study Fund awards up to $500 per year for language-related global experiences.
