In a time when the cost of higher education continues to increase, we understand the financial pressure that students, universities, and parents are under and we are committed to keeping our programs affordable. We are proud to announce that we have been able to keep our program price affordable since our program began in 2009 without compromising quality or experiential learning! That said, study abroad can still be a financial burden for some, this is why we offer scholarships to students studying on our programs.

Affiliate grants are available for the semester and summer programs to students attending one of our Affiliated institutions. Grants and scholarships will be automatically applied to the student’s invoice.
