Tuition & Fees

Students selected must demonstrate that they have the necessary personal funds to meet their travel, living, and accommodation expenses.

All institutions will assist students in locating suitable housing during rotations. These options include accommodations on campus or in local housing. In all cases, students are responsible for the expense of their room and board as well as the expense of traveling to and from the host country and host institution.
