UFIC has established the following scholarships for UF students studying abroad:

The Sones Scholarship for study in France is made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Peter Sones and Mrs. Lindsey Sones. These unique scholarships are awarded to undergraduate STEM students undertaking major-related coursework on an approved study abroad program or participating in a credit-bearing research project in a French institute. The aim is to provide an opportunity for STEM students to enhance their degree in an environment which also encourages full immersion with French culture and study of the French language. Sone Scholars will be awarded a minimum of $3,000, with higher awards possible depending on financial need and program budget. Students must contact the UFIC study abroad advisor for France to confirm eligibility.
