Please note: The 2012 fees are subject to change.
Program cost includes:
Hotel accommodations on a double occupancy basis, including breakfast each day, at the Sommer Haus Hotel in Linz, Austria, adjacent to the campus of Johannes Kepler University in that city and, in the final week of the program, at a three star beachfront hotel in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on the Adriatic coast. Single occupancy rooms at an additional charge will be available at both hotels.
An individual's personal tastes and preferences will, of course, pretty much determine what that individual will spend for food, entertainment, and other elective expenditures during the period of the Summer Academy, making generalizations in this respect somewhat risky.
Experience has shown, however, that a typical student will require something in the range of $20-25 per day for meals, transportation, and other basic personal costs while participating in the program. It is not unusual for a student participant to elect to remain at off-site program venues (Budapest, Vienna, or Venice) after the conclusion of formal activities in those cities, especially when these appear in the program schedule on a Friday which is very often the case. In that event, the student assumes the personal costs of hotel accommodations in that city and transportation expenses at the end of the weekend.
Tuition and fees for all Summer Academy participants should be paid to Georgia State University through Ms Cindy Perry, Summer Academy in International Commercial Arbitration Program Assistant, Georgia State University College of Law, P.O. Box 4037, Atlanta, GA 30302-4037. Credit card payment of program costs is available.
By Friday, March 1: $1300, which includes a $500 nonrefundable deposit due in order to reserve your space in the program, to be credited toward the program fee. Pay your deposit quickly and securely online »
By Monday, March 25: The balance of the program fee and tuition in full.
Note: Georgia State University students receiving financial aid will be charged program tuition directly from their award monies. It is the responsibility of ALL students to pay the balance of all fees by the March 25 deadline.
Most institutions will allow students to apply for financial aid to help fund summer foreign study. Students should consult their home institution's individual financial aid office to determine whether this is possible and to apply in time to secure adequate funding. In addition, some institutions offer scholarships to help fund foreign study and students should explore this possibility as well.
For Georgia State University students, a number of scholarships for study abroad are available through the State of Georgia, including the International Education Fee (IEF) Study Abroad Scholarship and the Board of Regents Study Abroad Scholarship. For students in the University System of Georgia, financial aid and the HOPE scholarship may also be used to pay for study abroad tuition.
