Financial Aid

Sacred Heart Students– Sacred Heart University scholarships and grants will not apply towards CCIS programs.  Only federal financial aid (for those who qualify) may be applied to CCIS programs.  You are welcome to contact Financial Assistance regarding loan opportunities and outside scholarships.

Visiting Students– If you receive a financial aid package from your home institution, please check with your study abroad/financial Aid office to find out if it may be used for this program.  Upon request, the Office of Global Affairs may provide your institution with the necessary documentation to support the transfer of aid.  Please note that Sacred Heart University will not process financial aid for visiting students.


Scholarships are a great way to support the cost of your study abroad experience.  In an effort to encourage you to study abroad, and to make a study abroad experience more accessible, the SHU Office of Study Abroad prepared a list of scholarships and financial resources.  Please note that this is not a conclusive list but it will help you start your search process.  The OGA encourages you to apply and take advantage of as many relevant scholarship opportunities as possible.
