Globalize Your Education

For Economics majors, studying abroad is an excellent way to get valuable experience, set your resume apart, and fulfill degree requirements. Review the resources here to first explore how an international experience could fit into your degree plan. Then, connect with your Undergraduate Advisor and your Education Abroad advisor to ensure you're choosing the best program to fit your goals. Your Education Abroad advisor can also help you explore ways to use financial aid, scholarships, and grants to finance your travel!

Why Study Abroad?

When you step out of a familiar environment and engage with another society, where cultural, political, and academic perspectives differ from the U.S., it can greatly enhance your perspective by placing domestic issues and experiences within an international context.  It helps participants negotiate differences, listen to and learn from new viewpoints, and adapt to unfamiliar situations.  The changed perspective students gain from studying abroad helps make them better informed global citizens, and they are often more competitive for employment, fellowships, and graduate school.

You Can Afford to Study Abroad!

Receiving FAFSA? All subsidized & unsubsidized Stafford Loans will automatically work on your study abroad program! 
Veteran? Use your Veterans Benefits to help cover the cost of your program fee! 
Pell Grant Recipient? Not only can you use your Pell Grant, but you are also eligible for the Gilman Scholarship, worth up to $5,000! 
Need Scholarships? The PSU Ed Abroad office offers scholarship workshops every term and has a multitude of resources online for students on a budget. Come meet with us so we can talk about awards ranging from $500 - $10,000.
