Engineering Travel Grant

The Center for Global Engineering Engagement awards international travel grants to students in the College of Engineering each semester to ease the financial burden of studying abroad. These awards range from $300-$5,000 and are meant to enhance equal access to participation in an international experience. Travel grants are awarded to applicants with thoughtful, well-written essays regardless of financial need. The following criteria also may help your application but are not required.

  • Studying engineering abroad
  • Will be taking a foreign language abroad
  • Are choosing a non-traditional location

We thank our generous donors who make it possible to support College of Engineering students’ participation in international experiences. 

Eligibility Requirements
The following requirements must be met:

  • Must be an undergraduate degree-seeking student in the College of Engineering
  • Must be applying to study abroad with a PSU-approved program

Grant applications for summer study abroad are due February 1; applications for fall and academic year study abroad are due March 1; applications for spring study abroad are due September 10.

When will I know if I am approved? 
Applicants will receive notification of their award status prior to the commitment deadline of their study abroad program. Awards are not disbursed until participation is confirmed.
