Piedmont International University, Corban University, Faith Baptist Bible College, Cedarville University, and Appalachian Bible College, to name a few, have partnered with Baptists for Israel as one of their school’s Studies Abroad locations so that students have been able to obtain grants and scholarships. Check with your current school for those possibilities.
A Pell Grant may be available through your present school for use in Israel. You must promise to return to that school to finish your degree.
