Applications for fall, spring and academic-year study abroad are due the last Friday in February during the academic year prior to the year a student wishes to study abroad. For example, if a student wishes to study abroad in fall 2018 or spring 2019, a study abroad application is due the last Friday of February 2018. The once-a-year application cycle ensures adequate time for students to obtain immigration paperwork and secure housing abroad, and requires advanced planning. This will also allow students to apply for Sweet Briar scholarships, which are only offered in the spring. Late applications will be considered, but late applicants may not have access to all available scholarships.
