Study Abroad

If you receive Princeton need-based aid and enroll in an approved study abroad program during the academic year, aid is available for your semester abroad. Your financial aid will be adjusted based on the cost of your program. If your semester abroad is less than Princeton's costs, your Princeton grant will be reduced accordingly. If the costs are greater than Princeton's, your grant will be increased to meet the costs.

Students participating in fully Princeton-owned programs that are entirely taught and transcripted by Princeton University (e.g., Princeton Field Semester in Kenya and Princeton Tropical Biology Program in Panama) can continue to receive Title IV aid as eligible.

Although Princeton Grant is not available for summer study abroad programs, students participating in the summer faculty-led programs will receive Pell Grant if eligible.

We will use the approved budget forwarded to us by the Office of International Programs.
