Student Going Global



Regardless of whether you use a Cal state L.A. sponsored program or an independent study abroad program, you may incur additional expenses beyond what you would spend studying at Cal State L.A.  In most cases, both financial aid and scholarships are available to defray these additional expenses.

If you are participating in a Cal State L.A. administered study abroad program, exchange program, or affiliated program, you are encouraged to apply for the scholarships listed on that specific study abroad program’s website.  In addition, you may also be eligible for National Scholarships.

There are many more scholarships available beyond the list below.  You are encouraged to research for additional scholarships.
