There was an offering of such scholarships in the fall, with all of them being spoken for fairly quickly, but this is ADDITIONAL funding that has been made available. I believe that the scholarships are in the amount of $500 for short-term study abroad (such as the May ENGR 4060 courses in Italy, Brazil, China, and Germany).
