Budget Planning

Can I really afford to study abroad? We know this is an important question on the minds of many students and their families. UR is committed to making an international experience attainable for qualified students. We have made detailed costs clear for each program so that you can plan early, and have provided a number of links to scholarships and other resources. Some of these require advance planning and an additional application, but we’re here to help you through it. Our study abroad team can address financial questions during the one-on-one advising with IE staff or you can connect with the staff of the financial aid office.

Here are a couple of important things to keep in mind:

  • Students pay University of Richmond tuition for UR semester and year-long programs and financial aid will be applied to these programs.
  • Each Richmond student approved to study abroad on a UR semester-or year-long program receives a $1,000 travel allowance each semester. Please see the Support for Semester Abroad page for further details.
  • Each study abroad program’s brochure page in Gateway Abroad provides the most recent information about costs.
  • Study abroad scholarships are available through the University as well as external sources.
