USF provides students and faculty study abroad program participants with insurance coverage for sickness, accident, hospitalization and emergency medical evacuation. This coverage is extended to program participants for the dates of the program.  Those who plan to travel independently, in advance of or after the program, must arrange their own insurance coverage.

The Program costs for the USF/DPSP is currently being calculated, but estimates are between $11k – 12k for in-state Florida residents, and $18k – 19k for non-Florida residents.

Information about financial aid and scholarships will be available through USF Education Abroad, but students should also contact their home institution’s Financial Aid office to see what funds can be applied to this particular Program.  The earlier students start this process, the easier it is to identify and apply the financial help required to fund their study abroad experience.
