Financial Aid Information

HOPE scholarship applies to tuition for University of Georgia students. Note that changes in the HOPE scholarship mean that HOPE no longer covers 100% of tuition. Check with the University of Georgia Financial Aid Office for details on financial aid. (HOPE Scholarship funds are not available until 10 days before the start of each term.) Students from other universities may check with their home institutions for similar financial aid opportunities. It is each student’s responsibility to go to your Financial Aid Office and notify them that you are doing the Cannes Study Abroad Program and request financial aid for the summer term. This enables your Financial Aid Office to start the paperwork necessary for your scholarships and/or financial aid to be transferred to the University of Georgia.
