Financial Planning for International Studies

Financial Planning

For JBU's fall Irish Studies semester, your financial aid package remains the same and work study is available.  

The amount of JBU’s institutional aid applicable to all other study abroad programs varies.  Outside aid such as Pell Grants, loans, and non-JBU scholarships apply to all approved semester programs. 

The following amounts are provided as guidelines and are awarded by the International Programs Committee to 20 JBU students per year who have given alert as required.  The award for each student is based upon need, CUM GPA, seniority, and number of participants for the term.



If you plan to study off-campus for a semester with a non-JBU program, you must email Melissa Stevenson  by February 15th for fall semester award or October 15th for the spring semester award in order to apply JBU institutional aid toward your fees.

You will be billed the program cost and pay through your JBU Student Account on Eaglenet. For specific program applications and some payment schedules please see this page.
