Finances and Scholarships


When planning on how much money to bring for your personal expenses and meals, it will be a good idea to compare the cost of living between San Jose, California and the destination of your FLP. Check out this cost of living comparison website


Financial Aid

Undergraduate students may be able to use their Financial Aid toward the FLP if they are planning to take minimum 6 units during the summer session. Graduate students may be able to use their Financial Aid toward the FLP if they are planning to take minimum 4 units during the summer session.

The Financial Aid disbursed for the Summer FLP is part of your Financial Aid award for the academic year (Fall and Spring) so be sure to save some of your Financial Aid for the Summer if you plan to participate in an FLP. For more information, please see the Summer 2017 Financial Aid Fact Sheet for Faculty-Led Programs.

You are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible to find out the process of allocating your Financial Aid award toward the Summer FLP.
