About CAES Study Abroad
The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences provides students with unique study abroad opportunities developed to offer life-changing international experiences. As the impact of our global economy grows, so does the need for employers to hire well-rounded citizens who can provide unique perspectives of the traditions, beliefs and values of other cultures.
Studying abroad will open your eyes and give you a fresh perspective on people and the world. When participating in one of our programs, you will go beyond the classroom as you experience life changing moments through hands-on learning. You will visit historic sites, meet new people, eat exotic foods and create lasting memories—all while taking courses that apply toward your degree.
UGA and CAES provide a multitude of study abroad options from two week adventures to semester exchange programs. Don’t let these opportunities pass you by!
Study abroad programs have three main costs: program fee, tuition and fees, and airfare. Many students think that funding a study abroad trip is out of reach for them. However, CAES has multiple resources designated to aiding students in getting the funding needed to take advantage of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
- International Travel Scholarship Awards are available to undergraduates enrolled in CAES. Funds can be used for travel-related expenses for students in a CAES endorsed study abroad program, student exchange and international internship programs.
- The Office of Global Programs offers a variety of international travel scholarships to CAES undergraduate and graduate students.
- The Broder-Ackermann Global Citizen Award recognizes a CAES undergraduate student who has embraced global citizenship in their own community or globally.
- The Ag Abroad Photo Contest recognizes student photography illustrating agriculture outside of the United States.
- The UGA Office of International Education provides study abroad scholarship opportunities to UGA students.
- National Scholarships are also available for students who wish to study abroad.
Additionally, if you are eligible, you can apply your HOPE scholarship toward tuition costs. Out-of-state students pay in-state tuition for study abroad.
It is never too early to start planning your study abroad adventure.

They can guide you through your options and give you the necessary information to have a successful experience.
