The Bridge Loan Application is available for those students who have been awarded the International Education Scholarship. The loan is for the amount of airfare or the amount of award, whichever is the lowest. Loans are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis and subject to availability of funds. The primary purpose of the loan is to provide students with their award money in advanced so they can purchase airfare to their study abroad location.
