Alternate Funding Opportunities

Fundraising will help to make your trip more affordable.

Make donating as easy as possible (cash or check) or set up a personal fundraising website like GoFundMe or Fund My Travel. You will be more likely to get an actual donation rather than a promise to donate, and don’t be afraid to follow up if you haven’t received a response. Enthusiasm, creativity, and perseverance on your part - and not fearing rejection in some instances - will likely take you a long way. Remember, every little bit helps!

Financial Aid Information

Financial aid is available for study abroad participants on a Brockport program.

Brockport study abroad programs vary in price.  Please refer to the budget sheet for the program you are interested in.  You can find the budget sheet, outlining the cost of the program and the estimate of additional costs associated with participation in the program, on this website under the cost section of the program you are interested in. The budget sheets are meant to be used as guidelines, since the costs outlined in the estimate of additional costs are only estimates and may increase or decrease due to exchange rate flucuations and personal spending habits.

If you currently receive financial aid in the form of a grant, student loan, or scholarship, you may be able to continue to receive that same financial aid to apply towards the cost of your participation on a Brockport Study Abroad Program. If you are eligible for any of the following types of aid, you may be able to use them to help offset the cost of studying abroad.
  1. Federal Aid (financial need based): Pell Grant, Perkins Loan, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Program Grant (SEOG), Educational Opportunity Program (EOP),and Subsidized Direct Student Loan.
  2. Federal Aid (non-financial need based): Unsubsidized Direct Student Loan or Direct Parent Loan (PLUS)
  3. State Aid (income based) : Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
  4. Private Scholarships 
  5. Alternative Student Loans - Apply with lender of your choice and will need to be certified by your home school.
Students apply for financial aid at their HOME CAMPUS.  The home campus is the school where the student is earning their degree or matriculated at.

Enrollment in a program of Study Abroad Program approved for credit by the student's home institution, may be considered enrollment in the home institution for the purposes of applying for federal student aid.

Students from Other SUNY schools should contact the Financial Aid Office at their home campus to let them know they will be studying abroad through Brockport.  Please have your Financial Aid Office complete the Financial Arrangement Form, which is also available on this website under "Learning Content".

Non-SUNY students and SUNY Community College students must get the approval from their home campus.  You should ask to be advised about policies regarding visiting student status. In most cases, you will need to have a consortium agreement completed.  You will obtain the consortium agreement from your home school.  This agreement will then be sent to the Study Abroad Office at Brockport and it will be completed by the Financial Aid Office at Brockport and returned to your home institution for final approval.

Brockport students who are receiving financial aid, are recommended to request direct deposit of your funds. This will ensure that you will receive the money as quickly as possible.

For more information, contact:
  • The Office of Financial Aid on your home campus
  • The Office of International Education at Brockport
