In addition, check with your home institution for the availability of financial assistance and whether any current financial aid can be applied to this program.
A USD$500 program deposit will be required to begin the internship allocation process. This deposit will be credited towards the final program fee. In addition, all participants using TEAN housing will be subject to a refundable housing deposit of USD$350 (less damages and/or cleaning fees.)
