Summer Study Abroad

Students can also enhance their learning experience greatly by enrolling in summer study abroad programs. These days, they no longer have to spend their summer vacation simply in leisure instead they can venture abroad on a summer study program for foreign language study following their freshman or sophomore year. Although summer study abroad programs are quite a different experience as compared to an academic year or term study program they are still very enlightening and rewarding. A successful summer abroad program should help the international student determine if they want to pursue a full year or semester abroad program.  

Before taking up the summer study abroad course, it's a good idea to check whether you can get credits from the various study programs which are handled on a case by case basis by the residential college deans and the head of the department relevant to the courses taken while abroad. In fact for these sort of summer study sessions abroad, many universities give the students a chance to apply for scholarships and financial aids although these grants tends to be quite limited at times. As always, students wishing to go for the summer study abroad programs should apply ahead in case they are looking for scholarship assistance.

Light Fellowship etc which are either need based or merit based. These are some of the best summer study abroad programs for high school as well as college students.

Summer study abroad programs need not necessarily be for formal study.
