Funding is one of the most important factors in study abroad decision making. Often students assume that studying abroad is cost prohibitive or is more expensive than studying at RIT. However, study abroad costs vary dramatically by program due to length, number of courses, location, etc. As a part of the application process, the Education Abroad office will provide students with a detailed budget worksheet outlining the actual and estimated out-of-pocket costs of studying abroad. Students may be eligible to use federal and/or RIT aid to help fund their experience. There are also many study abroad scholarships available from program providers, national organizations and even RIT.
