Studying abroad during the summer has many, many benefits—OWU encourages students to consider their options to study at a partner institution or program for credit during the summer.

Scholarships are available including the OWU Schott Summer Study Abroad Scholarship and the OWU West Summer Study Abroad Scholarship. Students receiving Pell Grants are eligible for Pell support also during the summer.

There are many pre-approved programs that offer an international experience at a very reasonable cost. You can be abroad for four to six weeks, get credit for two courses in a wide variety of subjects, and have a valuable cultural experience.

Since studying abroad during the summer is non-term (i.e., not part of the regular academic year), the application process is simple and quick.

Come to a Summer Study Abroad session or stop by and see an OWU Connection (“Merrick”) Mentor to learn more. You can look for summer programs using OWU's program search site online. (In "Simple Search" you can select "summer" in the drop-down menu along with other criteria, such as location.)  In order to apply to a summer program click the "Apply Now" button on the program page of OWU's program search site.
