Study Abroad Programs - now or later - will change your life. Globalization of communication, commerce, arts and culture is revolutionizing societies everywhere. Future success in business, politics, and your chosen career will increasingly depend not only on professional expertise, but on personal familiarity with clients, customers and associates from different cultures. Your learning as an MCLA student studying in Europe, Asia, or the Americas will prepare you to meet tomorrow's challenges. It may also change your life today.
MCLA is a member of International Studies Abroad (ISA), CISabroad, and the Semester At Sea Program which allow students to travel and study in many different universities around the world. Through the National Student Exchange students have the option of studying at a number of universities throughout the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S Virgin Islands. At MCLA, your learning about the world begins locally and ends globally.

MCLA provides students with a number of scholarships in order to help fund their education. The Sharron Zavatarro and the Centennial Scholarship are specific to traveling away. Contact the Financial Aid Office for MCLA scholarship listings and deadlines. The following are also available scholarships for traveling abroad.
Students should also consider doing their own personal fundraising in preparation for international travel. Go Fund Me is a great site to help students gather financial resources for their trip.
