What's included?

What is covered and what should we expect to pay?

Option 1: Semester abroad

With the semester abroad experience, if a student is traveling on a program affiliated with Queens the students pays tuition, room and board at Queens just as though he/she will be a full-time student living on campus for the semester or year. JBIP funds will cover airfare, health insurance and any application fees. When the student arrives abroad, tuition is waived at the host university and room and board is provided (a minimum of 19 meals per week). Each student is also required to pay a $250 deposit, which will be refunded upon successful completion of the program. The out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, text books or other course materials, additional independent travel, souvenirs, and additional meals or other personal expenses.

Option 2: Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs

Each faculty-led program is slightly different depending on the location, duration, and course objectives, but generally include international flights, accommodation in hotels, hostels, or dorms, in-country transportation, entrance to major historical sites and museums, and most breakfasts. Some faculty-led programs have supplemental fees, which must be paid by the student. Each student is also required to pay a $250 deposit, which will be refunded upon successful completion of the program. Out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, text books or other course materials, additional independent travel, souvenirs, and additional meals and other personal expenses.

Option 3: International Internships

Students who participate in a Myrta Pulliam Center for International Education-sponsored internship can use their JBIP fund to cover program costs. Such costs include accommodations (most commonly with a host family, and including two meals per day) and airfare. Each student is also required to pay a $250 deposit, which will be refunded upon successful completion of the program. Out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, additional independent travel, souvenirs, additional meals and other personal expenses.

Option 4: Language Immersion

Students who go abroad for a language immersion course will also pay a $250 deposit which will be refunded at the successful completion of the international experience. Some locations have supplemental fees, which must be paid by the student. Each student will have an appointment with an advisor and will tailor their program by location and language. The JBIP funds typically cover international air travel, home stays and the language courses. Out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, text books or other course materials, additional independent travel, souvenirs, additional meals and other personal expenses.

Option 5: Summer Programs in France

For summer programs in France, JBIP funds typically cover international air travel, housing, and classes at the host university. Some locations have supplemental fees which must be paid by the student and each student is also required to pay a $250 deposit which will be refunded upon successful completion of the program. Out-of-pocket costs include passport and visa fees, text books or other course materials, additional independent travel, souvenirs, and additional meals or and other personal expenses.

Through the generosity of donors, Queens has scholarships for each of these options to help defray out-of-pocket costs. Scholarship applications are distributed to all students who have been approved for a JBIP program each Fall.
