Program Fee: $3,300 (includes all housing; required course excursions; and related academic expenses). Additional instructional costs (books and materials, required immunizations) will vary, but students should budget up to $130 for these expenses. Roundtrip airfare is estimated at $1,500, meals at $800, and personal expenses at $800. International students may be required to purchase visas for entry into Hungary and Turkey at an additional cost.
Financial aid will be available from PIIRS. Additional support may also be available from the Office of International Programs (OIP)
; see in particular the Dean’s Fund for Summer Study Abroad. Please consult directly with the OIP for other funding possibilities and pay close attention to application deadlines.
To ensure a place in the seminar, a $500 nonrefundable deposit will be charged to participants’ accounts on April 1; the balance of the course fee will be charged to accounts on May 15.
NB: Students who accept a place in a Global Seminar and then, before the seminar begins, withdraw or cannot participate because they are no longer enrolled at Princeton will lose the nonrefundable deposit and any unrecoverable costs. There are no refunds after the start of the program.
The Program in Near Eastern Studies and generous endowments from Princeton alumni help to underwrite the actual cost of the 2012 Global Seminar in Turkey.
