Program Fee and Financial Support
The comprehensive fee for the 2014 Language and Culture Program in Kaliningrad is $5,500, which includes cost of instruction, onsite coordination, accommodation, some group meals, local excursions, travel insurance, limited use of cell phone in Russia, airport transport in Russia and round-trip international airfare (JFK-Moscow-Kaliningrad).
Students should budget for the cost of meals, estimated at $25/day for a total of $1,150, passport and visa application fees, personal expenses (including, but not limited to: additional insurance, gifts, snacks, medical expenses, daily living incidentals, laundry, additional internet usage) and cost of transport between student’s point of departure and the meeting point at the start and end of program (JFK airport, New York City).
All students are strongly encouraged to do some individual research and also check in with their home institutions about scholarships and other financial aid opportunities, as eligibility for assistance is highly dependent on individual circumstances. Students attending college on Pell Grants should apply for Benjamin Gilman Scholarships, starting in mid January 2014.
