Study Abroad Scholarships & Financial Aid
HHS Study Abroad Scholarships
Through the generosity of Dr. John and Emma Tse, the John and Emma Tse Fund for Global Scholars has been established to assist undergraduates in the College of Health and Human Sciences with costs associated with studying abroad. Scholarship amounts vary, but often range from $1,000 to $3,000.
This fund was established in recognition of the teaching and counseling career of Professor Charles V. Riker, who served the University from 1959 to 1983 as a professor in HDFS, and his spouse, Audrey Palm Riker, a clinical psychologist. HDFS students participating in a study abroad program that incorporates activities relating to children who are economically disadvantaged are eligible to apply for the Riker Fund scholarship.
Presented each year to a Psychological Sciences major who participates in the Study Abroad Program to help defray costs of travel and expenses.
Students from diverse ethnic backgrounds; students going to non-traditional countries; students participating in credit-bearing internships; students with disabilities; first-generation college students, or students participating in fields of study that are underrepresented in study abroad are encourage to apply. Only U.S. citizens who have a Pell Grant are eligible. Purdue’s National and International Scholarships Office (NISO) will help you apply for a Gilman Scholarship.

Division of Financial Aid
Financial Aid varies greatly at Purdue University. Each student's Financial Aid package is different, so it is important that students talk to the DFA in person to determine what assistance is available toward their chosen program. Students should make an appointment with Cheryl L. Dixon (765-494-5050).
