We’re charting a new landscape of global integration, with the arts and design at its center.
At VCUarts, you can take part in programs led by our faculty, participate in an exchange program with a school in another country, or get a Dean’s International Study Grant to travel to new places and conduct research that matters to you. VCU’s Global Education Office helps you put it all together.
VCU is also part of a network of more than 300 universities in which you can study. University of São Paulo or the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel, Beijing Foreign Studies University or the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda in India—where in the world do you want to go?
Grants and Scholarships
Each year, the VCUarts dean’s office awards up to $25,000 to students to pursue special interests and research abroad.
VCUarts awards grants to support graduate students’ professional travel for conferences, and for performances and exhibitions of their work.
