Interning abroad is a great investment in your future career, but everyone’s financial situation is different.
We encourage you to find the right plan that fits your needs and budget. Below are some examples of financing ideas to consider when looking into an internship abroad.
We offer a financing option that allows you to pay for the program through a monthly installment payment option. The amount and number of payment depends on time of enrollment and program start date. Please note there is a 5% interest fee for the installment plan and requires an auto-payment choice. Contact your Admissions Counselor for details.
Global Experiences is a commitment partner in the IIE Generation Study Abroad initiative and has pledged $25,000 in scholarship funds to engage a more culturally-aware workforce by 2020. GE is proud to offer $1,000 scholarships as well as the Core Value, HBCU, and Global Leader awards for deserving students.
We appreciate how expensive life can be and not everyone has the bank account to fund an international internship experience. But, everyone has friends and we want to reward you for bringing them to Global Experiences and have them join the program with you. The most people you refer the cheaper your program becomes.
If you are earning credit for your internship abroad you may be able to use your existing financial aid package through your university. Speak with your financial aid office and GE Admissions Counselor for more details. If you earn transfer credit directly through Fairfield University, our School of Record, you may also be able to utilize your existing financial aid.
An internship abroad is an investment in your career. You may be surprised by how many of your loved ones would be happy to support you. Don’t be afraid to ask family members and community organizations like churches or synagogues to help you achieve your goals.
Crowdfunding is a fantastic way to raise the funds needed for your internship abroad. Ask friends and family to donate toward your international experience instead of asking for gifts for your birthday or holidays.
If you think a private loan is the best option for you, make sure to fully research and question a lender before deciding to take a private loan. International Student Loan is a good resource to compare different lenders and interest rates.
