What are international fellowships and scholarships?
International fellowships and scholarships are financial awards granted to students to support study, research, or work abroad. Eligible students are selected through an often competitive application process.

Education Abroad Travel Grants
RIT students participating in an RIT Global Campus direct enroll, faculty-led, exchange and certain affiliated programs may be eligible for Education Abroad travel grants between $500 and $2500. The scholarship was created in an attempt to reduce traditional barriers to study abroad and support student engagement in international education.
To be considered for a travel grant, fill out the compass application for your desired study abroad program by the appropriate deadline. Make sure to “opt-in” for scholarship consideration and complete the essay requirement.
