While the University Financial Aid Office (accessed here) is the first place to stop to see what kinds of options are open to you, there are also some financial aid options available through the Department.

One example is the Villagers Scholarships for the study of historical preservation in Genoa. These have been given out over the past few years to students on our semester-long study abroad program in Genoa. The award amounts vary, but they are generally in the range of about $3,000. Although the Villagers decide on the awards, they have given FIU students up to four scholarships in a given year.
