The mission of the Study Abroad Programs Office at Texas A&M University is to provide students in all fields, at all levels, a wide range of educational experiences abroad. Such experiences not only provide students with the appropriate academic/professional training and sensitivity to other cultures, but also help to create effective humanitarians needed for an interdependent world.

TEAN 20 for 20 scholarships (meet with advisor to see if travel can get BIMS credit).
We’re turning 20 this year! To celebrate 20 years of students studying and interning abroad with us, we’ve teamed up with our partners to bring you the “20 for 20” scholarship program. We have 20 scholarships for both semester and summer study abroad programs across the Asia Pacific to encourage even more students to study abroad. One lucky applicant will also receive a full ride from TEAN to a program of their choice that includes tuition, program fees, housing and airfare to study abroad in 2016.
The scholarship awards range between $500 – $5,000. This process is extremely competitive considering the limited amount of awards available due to a higher minimum and maximum award. Completing the application is not a guarantee for a scholarship award.
Students are welcome to apply for multiple scholarships if they meet the requirements for each, but must fill out a separate application for each scholarship.
