Scholarships & Fellowships
UNH Scholarships and Fellowships
There are many opportunities to help finance your undergraduate foreign experience. In addition to the options below, please check the CIE Facebook page regularly for the most up-to-date postings. There is significant funding available from sources both internal (UNH) and external (money offered by the U.S. government or private foundations).
Center for International Education (CIE) Scholarships
The Center for International Education conducts a bi-annual scholarship competition (spring and fall) and awards $500-$5,000 grants to eligible undergraduates. Please note that students going on a UNH study abroad program or UNH course with study abroad component less than one month in duration are only eligible for a smaller grant.
Approximately six to ten scholarships will be awarded each semester, including the Foley-Jackson award for $5,000 based both on financial need and academic merit. The majority of our grant awards are $1,000.
We encourage all students who meet the criteria to apply. It is never too early!

Hamel has donated money to the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation for the purpose of establishing a Traveling Fellowship, which will be coordinated by the UNH Office of National Fellowships.
