Student Financial Support Programs

The center is dedicated to supporting VSB students in advancing their international business education. To that end, the center is proud to offer several competitive scholarships for study-abroad activities. These programs provide financial support for VSB students who choose a semester-long study abroad, to participate in one of our summer international internships, or to participate in unique, non-credit, international activities. In addition, the center provides a four year scholarship each year to highly-qualified foreign students applying for admission to VSB.
