Global Education Oregon
300 W Oregon Hall
Global Education Oregon (GEO) offers more than 300 study abroad programs in about 70 countries where UO students may take classes, conduct research, or participate in a wide range of internships or service-learning experiences. These opportunities include full-term, study-abroad programs; academic year exchanges with international universities; and short-term, faculty-led programs. For complete information about all program opportunities, visit geo.uoregon.edu.
UO students may earn academic credit while they gain professional development experience abroad. Internships are open to sophomores, juniors, seniors, and master’s degree students who are currently enrolled in a UO degree program. Financial aid, including scholarships, is available. Several GEO programs allow students to combine part-time internships and part-time study in the same term abroad.
Scholarships and Finances
Because students are registered at the UO while participating in study abroad programs and international internships, they are eligible to receive most or all of their UO-awarded financial aid. In addition, numerous scholarships are available for both undergraduate and graduate students planning to study or intern abroad, including new scholarships for first-generation college students and students with disabilities.
Distinguished scholarships are also available for students participating in study abroad programs. The Gilman Scholarship supports Pell Grant eligible undergraduate students who are pursuing study abroad experiences, and the Boren Scholarship funds students interested in studying a critical language abroad. In addition to these awards, qualified graduating seniors and graduate students can pursue other distinguished scholarships such as the U.S. Student Fulbright program to support international research, university study, or teaching. For a comprehensive overview of funding options abroad, visit geo.uoregon.edu/scholarships.
When you participate in a GEO or sponsored study-abroad program, you will receive University of Oregon credit. For complete details, refer to the course equivalency process and the Office of the Registrar course equivalency database.
