Financial Aid

Students should apply for financial aid for the Salamanca program through their home institution. If you are not currently  enrolled in a university, you will have to apply to Augusta University as a regular student and apply for financial aid through Augusta University. If this is the case, apply to the Salamanca program early and let the director know you will be applying for financial aid through Augusta University.

Even if you already receive financial aid, you may obtain additional aid or loans for the purpose of studying abroad.

Financial aid is awarded through your home institution  after Augusta University has signed a consortium agreement. Check with your home institution  to initiate the process.

Apply for financial aid as early as possible because  final payment is due before financial aid is disbursed during the first ten  days of the semester.

HOPE Scholarship (Georgia only)

HOPE will pay most of the Augusta University tuition. Check your home institution to inquire about procedures for using HOPE on this program. Do not assume the HOPE will be automatically processed for the Salamanca program. You must take the appropriate steps on your own campus to ensure you receive the HOPE funds.

Augusta University Study Abroad Scholarship

Available to Augusta University undergraduate students. Please review our funding page for more information. 

Other Scholarships

Check with your home institution for additional scholarships.
