When spring break rolled around last year, I thought I had it made. I was living in London, just a train ride away from some major tourist destinations – Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Germany, etc. My friends and I spent many nights at the kitchen table talking excitedly about how we were going to spend the entire 16-day vacation (another perk of being abroad!) jetting across Europe.
But that all changed when I looked at my bank account and this started playing in my head. I had run out of money, and it ended up costing us a lot more than it should have because I had to wait to get approved for a loan (and I almost didn’t get it in time). Since getting work study abroad is notoriously difficult, here are some links to internal and external scholarships sponsored by NYU, so you can make sure that you have enough to last you a full Eurotrip (or travelling to wherever your little heart desires).
