Financing Study Abroad

Many students have concerns about financing a studying abroad program and associated costs. However, a lot of students don't know that they can apply their financial aid package to their study abroad trip in addition to applying for scholarships and fundraising.

GGC students can use their federal and state aid, including the HOPE Scholarship, for study abroad.
