Financial Aid

At BYU-Idaho, financial aid can include federal grants, academic scholarships, merit scholarships (usually from a specific academic department), or donor scholarships. Most of these forms of financial aid can be used to help fund your international study program. The same conditions that dictate the distribution of funding while on campus will usually apply to an international study program. For example, to qualify for your academic scholarship while doing a semester abroad program, you would still have to meet the minimum credit requirement for the semester. This implies that when participating in any program, you need to be taking courses from BYU-Idaho to qualify for uinversity financial aid.

If you have external scholarships that are paid directly to the university, these may possibly also be used toward the program. There may be stipulations to the aid available, so be sure to check with your program director and financial advisor to confirm specifics.
