Penn Global Seminars are funded by a generous donation from the Hasan and Arifa Ahmad Fund, as well as contributions from Penn's Global Engagement Fund. All in-country logistical costs, including accommodations, transportation, entrance fees, translation services, and group meals, are covered by Penn Global. Students do not pay a program fee to participate in a Global Seminar.
Students will be responsible for the cost of the round-trip flight to the program site. In some cases, students will be required to travel with a group flight. Students are also responsible for personal meals, visa fees, and vaccinations, where applicable.
A $250 deposit is assessed after a student commits to the program and is refunded upon receiving the student's confirmed flight itinerary. Students will be notified before the deposit is charged.
Students who receive financial aid may be eligible for an adjustment to their aid to cover the out-of-pocket costs of the program. Penn Abroad will share a budget sheet with Student Financial Services so that adjustments to the aid package can be determined.
All costs related to the on-campus component of the program are the responsibility of the student and are not figured into the program budget for SFS.
