Study Abroad

Eureka College encourages students to take advantage of our many study abroad opportunities. Studying abroad will expand your knowledge and appreciation of the world and make you a more competitive candidate on the job market.

We provide opportunities to help you study abroad.

We would like at least 10% of our students to have an international academic experience during their years at the school, either through semester or summer study, internships, or short trips led by EC faculty or staff.  We offer scholarships to help offset the costs associated with international travel.

Program Options

Study abroad may take many different forms.  For example, you may choose to participate in a short program led by Eureka College faculty or staff.  Or you could spend a semester at Lingnan University, our partner institution in Hong Kong.  Many students also select programs from our third-party organizations such as International Studies Abroad, the American Institute for Foreign StudyAcademic Programs International, or Student-Athletes Abroad. In short, there is a wide variety of study abroad opportunities to fit any student’s needs, whatever your budget, major and time frame may be.  Please schedule a meeting with our International Studies Coordinator, Dr. Emily Eaton, to start exploring your options!


Once you have selected a program, please notify the International Studies Coordinator to begin the approval and application process using this f orm.  After you’ve obtained approval, you may initiate the application process with the host institution or third-party organization that offers the program you’ve chosen.  At this point you should also apply for any study abroad scholarships for which you’re eligible.


If you are planning to study abroad during a spring semester, then all on-campus application materials are due by October 1st of the previous semester.  If you are planning to study abroad during the summer or a fall semester, then all on-campus application materials are due by March 1st of the previous semester.  Please note that these are Eureka deadlines.  The study abroad program you’ve chosen may have earlier deadlines for you to keep track of!
