Summer

Assistance may be available in the summer for a variety of enrollment or employment options.

Summer Financial Aid

Financial aid may be available if you plan to enroll in at least two units of credit in the summer. This may apply to on-campus summer courses, study abroad, or a credit-bearing practicum, field study, or internship. Visit the Summer Session page for details and application instructions.

Summer Study Abroad

Students attending Northwestern-sponsored and affiliated study abroad programs may apply for summer financial aid. You are also strongly encouraged to apply for study abroad scholarships, which can help cover your costs without using a quarter of your aid eligibility. Visit the Undergraduate Learning Abroad website for details.

Summer Work-Study

The summer work-study program provides full-time summer employment at Evanston community service agencies. Earnings can help cover your costs for the next academic year. Visit the Work-Study website for eligibility and details.
