*Fees may be based on estimates and are subject to change. 

Payments for all programs will be made in installments, directly to the Office of the Bursar of Bowling Green State University. A complete schedule of payments will be mailed to the student upon acceptance to the program.

Please be aware that the University-governed portions of this price (the instructional and general fees) are subject to change by the Bowling Green State University Board of Trustees. In addition, room and board fees may change before the beginning of the program due to fluctuations in the monetary exchange rate.

Financial Aid

Because the Academic Program Abroad is a part of Bowling Green State University, financial aid that could be applied to study on the BGSU campus can be applied equally to study in the program abroad. Outside financial aid for Academic Year Abroad programs is handled through the University Office of Financial Aid.


In addition to outside sources of financial aid, certain special scholarships are available for Bowling Green State University students. The Janet M. Shanklin Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year to selected students participating in the full academic year program (both fall and spring semesters) plus one scholarship is awarded to a student participating in the summer program. Recipients must submit a statement on their reasons for participating in the program and are selected by a committee from BGSU Romance and Classical Studies Department. Second, travel grants for students participating in any program are available through the International Education Committee of BGSU. Information on grants and additional education abroad scholarships are available here.
