Study Abroad


When Honors students travel and study abroad, they expand their horizons, learn about the world through direct encounters, and bring their experiences back to share with the community. Through Travel Abroad Grants (TAGs), the Honors College supports student travel throughout the world.


Imagine reading the classics at Oxford, performing avant-garde music in France, exploring the growth of entrepreneurship in China, bringing medical care to rural Honduras, investigating neuroprosthetics at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan, learning about the Renaissance in Italy, or studying the Maasi in East Africa.  Join a trip led by a faculty member or custom-design your own unique project. You can even spend a semester abroad at one of UCA’s many partner schools, using your academic scholarship along with funds from an Honors grant to cover additional expenses.


The Honors College funds dozens of students each year studying abroad. These extraordinary journeys that change lives are funded by TAG.  TAG funds are designed to put study abroad within your reach by paying a portion of the travel program expenses. Student experiences range from participation in trips that are two to five weeks abroad or a semester abroad at one of UCA’s partner schools. Students can even plan their own experiences for the summer or for a semester abroad.  To learn more about study abroad opportunities available through UCA, as well as additional funding opportunities, visit UCA’s Study Abroad site here.
