Non-Yale Summer Abroad Costs and Funding

Program Costs

Programs and universities will post tuition and related costs on their specific websites. We invite you to refer to the Budgeting section for tips on financial planning for study abroad. 

Payment Information

FAQ: Do I pay Yale tuition or fees for the term(s) I am abroad? 

If you study abroad for a summer, semester, or year on a designated (non-Yale) program, you will not pay tuition or fees to Yale for the term you are abroad. You will pay the cost of tuition for your program or university, and any associated fees.

FAQ: How do I pay my study abroad program or university tuition? 

The university or program abroad will bill you for tuition, room and board, as well as any other fees associated with attending. It is your responsibility to pay all program costs directly to the study abroad program or university.

FAQ: I receive Yale financial aid. Will that impact my summer study abroad costs?.

If you have applied and been approved for a Summer Abroad, you are eligible to apply for the International Study Award (ISA). The application process and deadlines are found on the ISA website

FAQ: Whom should I contact if I have questions about billing, payments, or the International Study Award (ISA)?

All questions regarding your bill should be addressed to the program or university you will attend.  If you have a question about the International Study Award, please contact

International Study Award

The International Study Award (ISA) provides a stipend for one summer experience abroad for all eligible undergraduates receiving Yale financial aid.

Note: In order to receive ISA funding, you must first receive Yale approval for your summer study abroad program. Once approved to study abroad, you will have access to the International Study Award request form as one of your required pre-departure forms in your MyCIPE account. This form is due by 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on May 1.

You may also want to consider applying for study abroad scholarships through outside organizations. If you'll be attending a Non-Yale program, be sure to check with your study abroad provider to see if they might offer funding opportunities. Keep in mind that external funding application deadlines can be much earlier than those at Yale.
