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.

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). For more information on how program budgets are created, please refer to About BudgetsBudgets for approved internships are created individually by the Office of Career Strategy.

Date: Program budgets are updated annually in early spring. The budgets below are for the Summer 2020 Cycle.
