Aid, Scholarships & Fundraising
Federal Aid All students who study abroad, Norwich and non-Norwich alike, may use their federal financial aid. Your campus financial aid office can help you determine what your federal financial aid resources will be. Institutional Aid Norwich University currently allows its students to use their Norwich institutional aid (e.g. President’s Scholarships or Dean’s Scholarships) during their semester in Berlin. If you are not a Norwich student, it is likely that your institution will have restrictions on using your institutional aid on external programs. Check with your campus financial aid office for information on their policy.
Norwich students may apply for the Politi scholarship to help fund their education abroad travel. The Politi fund was established to increase the internationalization of Norwich University. Typically due dates for the scholarship are October 31st for study starting in the following spring semester or summer or subsequent year and March 31st for study starting in the following summer or fall semester or subsequent year.
You may wish to search online for other scholarships to study abroad. Here are some resources to get you started:
