Study Abroad

The African Studies Program encourages students to consider studying abroad in Africa. Many of the credits you earn in these programs can count toward the Undergraduate and Graduate Certificates in African Studies.


Take some time to explore scholarship and grant opportunities, especially ones that seek to support students traveling to particular world regions, like the Joe Elder Scholarship which is given to students on year-long and non-Western European programs, or the Pritzker Pucker Scholarship which is given to students studying outside of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Western Europe for an academic or calendar year. For more information on study abroad scholarships, visit the International Academic Programs scholarships page.
