Study Abroad Opportunities

The Honors College strongly encourages study abroad for our students. The UofM's Study Abroad Office offers 160 programs in over 60 countries worldwide including semester, academic year, spring break and summer programs. 


In many cases, financial aid (student loans, Pell Grant, academic scholarships, etc.) can be used toward covering the cost of study abroad. Scholarships are available from the Study Abroad Office to support international study. In addition to the UofM Study Abroad Scholarship, there are various institutional and external scholarships students may be eligible to apply for.

Contact the Study Abroad Office for more information at tigersabroad@memphis.edu or 901.678.2814.
