Program Budgets

You are here

The ISA is a stipend intended to cover a percentage of a program's set and standardized budget. It will not cover all expenses related to a student's experience abroad. Even after careful planning and budgeting, unexpected costs may arise. All students – even students with 100% need – should plan to contribute at least some of their own money toward program and related expenses.

Please note that in Summer 2021, Yale Summer Session Abroad programs will not be running.

The standardized budgets outlined below are based on information provided directly by programs (e.g. tuition, program-provided housing and meal plans) and averages for U.S. citizen students (e.g. airfare, visa fees). This year only, the miscellaneous category additionally includes $1,000 to assist students in offsetting covid-19 related travel costs, such as arrival quarantines (see here for more information on the miscellaneous category). For more information on how program budgets are created, please refer to About Budgets.

Date: Program budgets are updated annually in early spring. The budgets below are for the Summer 2021 Cycle.
