PSU provides students several opportunities to apply for funding to support international opportunities.
The Barbara Willey ’37 Endowment for International Study Scholarship Fund. Applications are available through the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Office as well as online.
The Crawford Martin Opportunity Grants (CMOG) were established in 2011 with the intent of providing degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students of Plymouth State University with funding to meet ordinary and extraordinary educational opportunities that enable them to persist in attaining their degrees. These funds are expressly for covering expenses related to educational activity and should be accessed only after other campus funding resources have been pursued. The grants must be applied for and used in the same academic year. This means Study Away students planning for a Fall program should apply in early September (if need be, one can apply while on a Fall Study Away program and any grants awarded will be credited to a student’s tuition or financial aid for that same Fall semester). For specific questions, email Terri Potter, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs, Student Life, HUB 110
