Berea Term Abroad

Selecting a Program

We encourage students to consider one of our bilateral exchanges or a Kentucky Institute for International Studies (KIIS) semester program. Both of these are especially cost-effective options. Also, there are countless other options available through:

    • program providers,
    • by direct enrolling in a university abroad or
    • through one of our exchange programs.

Selecting a suitable program requires thoughtful and careful planning.

Financial Support

Financial support from Berea College is available for any major in the form of the Global Education Opportunity (GEO) Scholarship. The GEO Scholarship covers up to 75% of the cost of a semester abroad ($11,000 max). Endowed funding is variable every year, as are the number of applicants. Thus, the scholarship may be capped at a lower amount. The Department of Foreign Languages offers similar financial support for qualified majors. In addition, there are external scholarships.

*The percentages and cap amounts on these scholarships are subject to change at any time. Funds are finite, and may be arranged to provide for as many scholarships as possible.
