Office of Global Education Travel Grant

The University of Colorado Denver’s Office of Global Education (OGE) is pleased to offer a limited number of travel grants to CU Denver | Anschutz students pursuing one of our many short-term Global Study programs that take place each Winter and Summer. This grant covers round-trip, economy class international airfare (up to $1,600) purchased by the Office of Global Education through the university travel agency.

OGE strongly believes in the long-lasting, positive value of education abroad in broadening personal and academic perspectives. We hope that this grant helps bring study abroad within the reach of more CU Denver | Anschutz students.

You must have an active application for a CU Denver Global Study program taking place during the same term as the scholarship application. If you do not have an application for study abroad, please contact study.abroad@ucdenver.edu

Please Note:

  • If the scholarship recipient’s Global Study program is cancelled, the recipient can use the grant towards another Global Study program during the same academic year. The recipient will not need to complete the scholarship application again, but will have to complete the Global Study program application.
