Financial Aid

Financial Aid Information

Florence School of Fine Arts does not offer scholarships. However, most likely financial aid from your home school can be approved to study abroad at FSFA. In general, all USA federal financial aid, excluding Work-Study, should be available as long as students are full time time students receiving credits toward their degrees while studying abroad. This may also includes Pell Grants, PLUS Loans, and student loans. Most College and Universities approve state financial aid to study abroad, however, students should discuss policies with their study abroad or financial aid office. When calculating your financial aid be sure to include all possible expenses including the program cost (tuition and housing), airfare, books, field trips, course fees, materials, insurance, Visa, Permit of Stay, meals, phone, personal travel, and miscellaneous purchases.
