Funding Your Program

In addition to paying your tuition, you will also need to pay for the cost of the program and any additional expenses. Some program fees are all-inclusive —airfare, housing, meals, excursions, etc. are covered. You will only need a little extra spending money for things such as some meals and incidentals. Some program fees cover very little and you will need to purchase things like airfare on your own.  You may ask a Study Abroad Advisor to help you estimate costs for your particular program.

We highly encourage you to apply financial aid to offset the costs. If you are planning on participanting in one of our exchange programs, then financial aid for a Study Abroad program must be obtained at the home institution (Wayne State University) and requires a consortium agreement between WSU and the host institution before any financial assistance is awarded. Sources of funding include:

Some students have been able to raise funds by asking friends, family members, and their community to sponsor them.
