Program Inclusions

Administrative Fee

Administrative Fee

An administrative fee is included in the total price of the EuroScholars program, which covers costs related to marketing, recruitment, and application advising/support.

Mid-Stay Program

Mid-Stay Program

During the semester, a “Mid-Stay Program” will be organized for all EuroScholars students at one of the host institutions. Travel and lodging expenses for students traveling to attend the Mid-Stay program are covered. The Mid-Stay program will consist of an academic portion, in which students will present on their research findings up to that point of the semester, as well as social activities around the host city.

Insurance

International Medical Insurance

A Blanket Accident and Sickness Policy is included in the price and covers the program participant while abroad for the official on-site period of program. This is not an optional benefit; every ISA participant will be covered by this policy. Coverage can be extended before or after a program, up to four weeks total. Students can extend their policy for $25 per week by contacting their Program Manager.

NOTE: Students participating in certain EuroScholars destinations may be required to purchase additional host country insurance for immigration purposes. For example, students studying/researching in Switzerland may need to purchase Swiss insurance to meet immigration standards.

We recommend that all program participants maintain comprehensive health insurance while abroad. This is particularly important if you have any pre-existing conditions, but is also beneficial if you have an injury or illness while abroad and require further treatment upon your return home. Consult with your current insurance provider to confirm coverage policies while traveling abroad.
