BHCC Study Abroad Scholarship Program

Bunker Hill Community College offers a comprehensive Study Abroad program that allows students to experience different cultures. Each year, approximately 22 scholarships are awarded to assist BHCC students in realizing their dream of studying abroad. Faculty, staff and interested community members are also invited to take part in the programs, although scholarships are available only to qualified BHCC students.

What are study abroad scholarships? The BHCC Student Government Association and Bunker Hill Community College have provided funds to enable students to study in another country and to experience a culture different from their own.  Programs in 16 countries are available, and students can choose the program of greatest interest to them.  The scholarship covers 80% of the total cost of the study abroad program.
