Study Abroad Scholarship Fund
Expanding Access to Educational Excellence
As the cost of a college education continues to rise, Stony Brook prides itself on delivering a world-class education at a remarkably affordable price. We are committed to giving talented students and their families opportunities that may be otherwise unavailable to them. Our Study Abroad program is a unique feature of our continued effort to expand access to educational excellence. The mission of Stony Brook’s Study Abroad program is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness.
But we face the same challenges as institutions across the country - cost is a barrier for a number of students. With this recognition, we would like to partner with you to make scholarships available to eligible students who wish to study abroad, particularly minority and full Pell-eligible students.
Help us keep the promise of providing a global educational experience to the best young minds and future leaders from across the socioeconomic spectrum. We need your support.

Study Abroad Fund for Excellence
Go Abroad, Get Ahead!
The Stony Brook Study Abroad Fund for Excellence is a vital means of providing ongoing support to expand access to the global educational experience and to prepare students for global competitiveness. Recent empirical research shows a clear quantitative link between studying abroad and initial employability and later career development. And as such, our constant advise to students has been: Go Abroad, Get Ahead !
The Fund supports scholarships, start-up money for new initiatives, and various academic priorities in our Study Abroad and Exchange program. Annual giving allows our deans, directors and other faculty to respond quickly to new opportunities and urgent needs not covered by tuition and endowment spending.
