BGSU students who qualify for financial aid for a semester at BGSU may also qualify for funding to assist with the cost of the summer program. Students should consult with a Counselor in the Office of Financial Aid as early as possible for specific details about aid eligibility and summer aid forms. If contacting via email please include your name and ID number along with the program name and semester you are planning to study abroad.
