Overall Experience
100000% worth it. I gain a better perspective on the world and many cultures, while creating life long friendships! - University of St. Thomas - Minnesota View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA-Butler: Cork - University College Cork
Typical to the stereotype, I learned how to handle my drink.

Home-grown in Texas, in a land-locked area, it was beautiful to see the sea as often as I did. It was also stunning to se... - Austin College View Entire Review
I became very independent. There were a lot of times that I had to depend completely on myself when something bad happened and I learned a lot more about myself as a result. It was definitely a worthwhile experience. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Of course it was! Everyday is a learning experience! - Berea College View Entire Review

I also learned to adopt the important philosophy of life that t... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned that being open to every new experience is key. I learned that talking to the locals is the absolutely best way to learn new things. Certainly worth while. - New Mexico State University View Entire Review
After studying in Ireland, I will be writing my Honors Thesis on the Northern Ireland Conflict. I learned how to live, travel, and adapt in a totally new environment. I loved everyone I met and every place I visited. - Tulane University View Entire Review
Completely and so immensely so, worhtwhile! - Providence College View Entire Review

IFSA Scholarships

Any student applying to an IFSA-Butler program can apply for our general scholarship awards, which are $500 for a summer program, $1,500 for semester study, and $2,000 for the full year. We also offer special opportunities such as First Generation College Student scholarships and a Fill the GAP study abroad savings program that matches contributions up to $1,000. Plus, any student attending a public institution or an MSI (minority serving institution) is automatically eligible for either the IFSA State School Grant or the IFSA MSI Grant. Both are worth $2,000 off the program price.


Coincides with program deadlines

Any student who applies for an IFSA-Butler program may apply for a scholarship by completing a scholarship application. This is separate from the general IFSA-Butler program application.
