There are number of scholarships available for study abroad students. Below is a partial list to get you started!
- Presidential International Travel Fellowship - need based scholarship for airfare

Living with a host family is the best option for OU students. The families are screened and selected by the host university international office. Students interested in other lodging arrangements will be handled on a case by case situation, but approval is rarely given for independent apartment living.
Start by attending a Study Abroad 101 information session to learn the basics about study abroad as well as your next steps. Then, schedule an appointment with the study abroad adviser for Peru to move on to Phase 2!
