Program Description:


Traversing the Scottish cities and country sides on foot provide students an abundance of new experiences: the opportunity to meet new people from around the world; explore historical edifices and monuments; endless opportunities for learning and growing; and abundant time for self-reflection. Long distance international hiking becomes itself an allegory of the inimitable journey through life – far removed from the high speed realm of cyber connectivity and thus highly conducive to human connectedness.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid and scholarships are only available to currently enrolled MSU students. If you are a visiting student from another institution, you will need to work with your home institution Financial Aid Office to identify any available aid.

The seven colleges at Missouri State University are pleased to announce their respective Study Away Scholarships. A scholarship fund has been established by MSU’s President, International Programs, and the respective college to assist students with their study abroad. Search available college scholarships here!

Other Financial Aid:
Study Away Programs works closely with the Office of Financial Aid to make funding readily available for our study away students.  Before students can schedule an appointment with Financial Aid, you must submit an approved STFD Budget Worksheet to Study Away Programs.

Study Away students may be able to use their institutional aid, grants, or loans for their study abroad.  Students are encouraged to meet with Financial Aid as soon as possible to plan appropriately for their time abroad.  Please request a Study Away Financial Aid Counselor when making an appointment.
