Students who receive financial aid at Princeton continue to receive Princeton financial aid for the approved costs of study abroad programs during the academic year. For most students, the budget for studying abroad during the academic year is usually no higher than it would be for a comparable semester at Princeton, with some exceptions. Once approved to study abroad, a student’s program budget is reviewed by their study abroad adviser and submitted to the Office of Financial Aid, where it is adjusted to meet the financial needs of the program. The study abroad budget not only considers costs pertaining to program tuition, room, and board, but it also accounts for airfare, local transportation, books, and reasonable personal expenses.
In addition to the support offered by the Office of Financial Aid, some grants may be available for study abroad from sources outside the University. Talk to your study abroad adviser if you have questions.
