In addition to increasing one’s understanding of British and European business practices, students will have various opportunities to improve their knowledge of cultural differences through a British Culture course covering topics ranging from the history of Oxford to British humor and satire to British politics.

Scholarships

The Office of Global Education awards need-based scholarships on a competitive basis to participants on summer study abroad programs. OGE Summer Scholarship awards range from 20% to 50% of billable program cost and are scaled in proportion to program price and demonstrated financial need. Students who are currently receiving financial aid are automatically considered for this scholarship; there is no application process.

Limited scholarships are also available through the Office of Undergraduate Program for McDonough students. Awards are based on the same criteria as the OGE awards and are need-based. Consideration will be given to all students who are currently receiving financial aid from Georgetown University. Students should fill out the MSB Study Abroad Scholarship form in order to apply.  Students who are not receiving a financial aid but need tuition assistance may contact Dr. Amani, Senior Assistant Dean, Director of Global Programs, at ma779@georgetown.edu, to discuss eligibility.

OGE advises students to research and pursue a wide range of available funding opportunities. To find scholarships applicable to your program, browse the scholarships section of OGE’s website.

Commitment and Withdrawal Policy

A student’s commitment to a study abroad program confirms his or her intention to participate in that program.  Students who notify the Office of Global Education of their intention to withdraw from their overseas program after the stated Commitment Deadline will be assessed a withdrawal fee of $300, in addition to all non-recoverable costs that have been paid on their behalf, as determined by the Office of Global Education and its overseas partners.  These costs may constitute as much as twenty-five to one hundred percent of the program fee.

A committed student’s decision to withdraw from a study abroad program is effective from the date on which the Office of Global Education receives a written confirmation of the student’s decision to withdraw.  All withdrawal fees and refundable program costs will be calculated from the date the Office of Global Education is notified in writing of this decision.  No refunds will be given for the education abroad insurance fee.  

Georgetown University is not responsible for indirect costs paid directly by the student including, but not limited to, passport fees, vaccinations, and transportation costs.  Georgetown University reserves the right to cancel programs without prior notification; however, every effort will be made to provide participants with information on cancellations in a timely manner.  In the event of a non-voluntary cancellation, Georgetown University will refund application fees as well as all recoverable program costs.

The Office of Global Education is committed to making study abroad accessible to all interested and eligible students. OGE hopes that students with accessibility needs will pursue study abroad opportunities and use the available support services on campus for assistance and advice when necessary.

With over 200 approved-programs, OGE is confident that you will find a program that fits your interests and goals. Programs offer varying degrees of academic and lifestyle support. Please make an appointment with the OGE advisor specializing in your geographic area of interest to discuss how to best support any special needs you might have on programs that may interest you.
