Calculate your Anticipated ISA Funding

Point: Program budget   x   Your % eligibility   =   Your ISA (up to the capped amount)

  1. Find your aid percent eligibility in the Student Information System:
    • Log in
    • Go to the Financial Aid Menu
    • Click on the International Study Award Calculator at the bottom of the page
  2. Find your program budget
  3. Mulitply your aid percentage (as a decimal) by your program budget. If you receive a fellowship or salary to help fund your experience, your ISA amount may be reduced so that your total funding does not exceed the program budget. Please see examples below if your experience will be supported by other funding sources or if your program budget exceeds the ISA cap:

A student is participating in a $10,000 ISA-eligible program and is on 70% aid, so they will receive a $7,000 ISA. They will have an approximately $3,000 funding gap that they will need to cover out of pocket.

A student is participating in a $15,500 ISA-eligible program and is on 100% aid, so they will receive a $14,935 ISA (the cap amount for the 2021 cycle). They will have an approximately $565 funding gap that they will need to cover out of pocket.

A student is participating in a $10,000 ISA-eligible program and is on 70% aid, so they will receive a $7,000 ISA. If this student receives a $5,000 fellowship to help fund their experience, their ISA will be reduced to $5,000 so that their total funding does not exceed the $10,000 budget. They will receive a $5,000 ISA and their $5,000 fellowship.

A student is participating in a $16,000 ISA-eligible program and is on 100% aid, so they will receive a $14,935 ISA (the cap amount for the 2021 cycle). If this student receives a $1,000 fellowship to help fund their experience, their ISA will not be reduced because their total funding does not exceed the $16,000 budget. They will receive a $14,935 ISA and their $1,000 fellowship.

If you have questions about how a fellowship you are receiving will impact your ISA amount, please contact ISA@yale.edu with your intended program, aid percentage, and award amount.

If a student is named the recipient of a fellowship or scholarship after they have submitted their application for ISA funding, it is the obligation of the student to inform the ISA Committee of this additional funding via email, even if the student does not believe that the amount of funding received will impact their final ISA amount.

If a student is receiving summer funding for an experience separate from their ISA-funded experience, it is in the student's best interest to inform the ISA Committee via email in order to prevent delays in the disbursal of ISA funds to the student.

Note: It is the obligation of the student to inform the ISA Committee of this additional funding via email, even if the student does not believe that the amount of funding received will impact their final ISA amount.
