Study Abroad

Students studying abroad will be able to apply both need-based and merit-based financial aid, including Puget Sound scholarships and grants, to their study abroad program.  Program fees will be assessed for study abroad based on the cost of individual study abroad programs relative to the cost of Puget Sound tuition, and are used to support students prior to and during their study abroad experience. There are three program fee tiers, ranging between $300 up to $2400, with the majority of program fees falling at the $300 tier.
