About Us: The Institute for Study Abroad, Butler University
Use Your Financial Aid to Study Abroad

Many students don't realize that financial aid can help pay for study abroad. Pell Grants, Stafford Loans and PLUS loans can apply to your IFSA-Butler program.

College grants and scholarships, Perkins Loans, state grants and loans, and 529 plans may also be used for study abroad, but you'll need to ask your home campus financial aid office about their policies for transferring these types of aid.

  • 54 percent our programs' fees have been reduced, some by as much as 28 percent!
  • The average reduction of programs is 8.8 percent
  • 43 percent of our programs' fees are unchanged from 2015
  • These changes mean that over 60 programs are now more financially accessible to our students

To view fees for any program, visit the program page on our website and click on the Dates & Fees tab. You can also compare fees for an entire country by visiting the Program Dates and Fees page and clicking on any country link.

This is the first of many changes at IFSA-Butler to improve the student experience. Cost is an important factor in student participation, and we will continue to balance our costs with the quality of support, service and academics for which we are known.
