Degree Seeking Scholarships and Financial Aid

JCU Study Abroad Scholarships

Studying abroad in Rome is more affordable than you think.

As an overseas American liberal arts university in Italy, John Cabot has as its mission the goal of creating a community of both degree-seeking and study abroad students. To recognize the important role study abroad students have in promoting JCU's mission, a limited number scholarships are available for eligible study abroad students. 

The JCU Scholarship Committee determines award amounts based on academic merit and potential to benefit from the JCU experience as expressed in the application essay.
