Value of Study Abroad

Studying abroad offers students many invaluable opportunities: they can further develop the skills they will need to compete in a global economy, cultivate their language competencies, build meaningful connections with people from around the world, and much more.

By participating in a CGIS program:

  • LSA students receive in-residence credit, just as if they had taken courses on-campus in Ann Arbor,
  • Most financial aid will transfer, and financial aid packages can be adjusted to account for additional expenses such as airfare, passport and visa fees, and immunizations,
  • LSA students who receive need-based aid are eligible for additional funding through LSA Scholarships, which recently has awarded over $1M per year to students on CGIS programs,
  • CGIS students will receive expert advice and support before, during, and after their experience.
