Priority is given to applicants for Bentley-sponsored academic-year or semester study abroad immersion programs  outside  of  Western  Europe  and  Australia.  Applicants  for  programs  within  Western  Europe may be prioritized if the student’s plan of study includes significant language study.  A number of awards will be made! The exact number of awards will depend on quantity and quality of applications received.  Applicants will be prioritized according to level of financial need.

Awards will range:

Up to $5000 for Bentley-sponsored semester or academic year programs
Up to $3000 for Bentley-sponsored summer programs (minimum 8 weeks abroad)


Students  must  design  and  carry  out  a  cultural  investigation  project  throughout  the  term  abroad  and present their work at a special public event upon return to campus.  The format is open. Students may create written work, blogs, videos, multimedia, or any other final product provided that the project (or at  least  meaningful  excerpts)  will be  suitable  for  presentation  to  a  wide  campus  audience  of  students, faculty, and staff. 
Projects must:
  • Incorporate field-based research (for example, interviewing locals, following and analyzing local current events, investigating an aspect of the local culture that interests you).
  • Demonstrate achievable goals, creativity, and feasibility.
  • Involve  significant  reflection and analysis  throughout  the  course  of  the  term  abroad  (In  other  words,  your project  should  not  merely  report  and  summarize,  but  also  incorporate  your  experiences  and opinions over time.  You’ll need to demonstrate new understanding, learning, growth, or change that you have experienced as a result of your cultural investigation project). LSM or  Honors  students are  encouraged  to  apply.  Your  cultural  investigation  project may  provide  you with  potential  topics  for  your  culminating  project  or  senior  honors  capstone.  Please  discuss  this possibility with relevant advisors.


Click "Apply Now" above and answer the application questions before  the  application  deadline  for  your  study  abroad program.
