Interested in studying abroad? The Study Abroad office provides many services for those interested in spending a year in Japan!


Direct exchanges are a great way to study abroad – and you could be eligible for a guaranteed scholarship to participate. Washington state residents receiving a Federal Pell Grant through the Office of Student Financial Aid are guaranteed a scholarship of $4,000 for exchanges occurring in the 2020-21 academic year. But cutting costs and finding funding doesn’t stop there—the Study Abroad office has a variety of tools and resources available.
