Study Abroad

An Experience Like no Other

Eureka College encourages students to take advantage of our many study abroad opportunities. Studying abroad can help you when gaining future employment, deciding where and what to study in graduate school, and ultimately expand your knowledge and appreciation of the world.

We provide opportunities to help you study abroad.

Eureka College would like for at least 10% of our students to have an “out of country” experience during their years at the school, either through semester/summer study, internships, Sandifer Mentorships, Reagan Fellowships, Disciples of Christ-specific opportunities, choir trips, or service learning projects.

Worried about the cost?

The Study Abroad Program strives to obtain various tuition grants for current students interested in international travel. All study abroad monies go through Eureka College. Students who participate in the program are responsible for a presentation about their time abroad. They are also required to provide service to the College or the community to help promote cultural awareness or studying abroad in general. Financially, they are responsible for what the tuition grant is not able to fully cover.
