Application Deadlines for Study Abroad Programs and Scholarships
Program Manager, Office of International Education
Georgia Tech Study Abroad Programs span every continent and every academic discipline. Whether it is an exchange program, faculty-led program, or study/work abroad program, the Office of International Education www.oie.gatech.edu, offers Tech students a variety of ways to travel abroad while earning their Georgia Tech degree. As an added bonus, students enrolled in a study abroad program can use their institutional financial aid for studying abroad, and most programs offer in-state tuition for ALL students (plus $250 flat fee for non-resident students). Plus, there are many scholarships available for students who are studying abroad.
