PROGRAM SERVICES AND PRICING:
The decision to spend time abroad requires a big commitment and substantial financial investment. It is very important, therefore, to think about your primary goals for the experience. Do you want to learn in the classroom, gain real world experience, or both? Sage Corps' programs focus on experiential opportunities, but within a cost structure that aligns with most other study abroad programs. To help frame your decision-making process, we put together detailed information about our services and pricing below.
Budget estimates will vary depending on the city that you are going to. For a sample budget, visit the page for your city of interest.

To help clarify where Fellows' dollars go, we created the pie chart below. Note: Only average costs are represented, and costs vary across each location.
Program prices vary based on a variety of factors, such as housing type (e.g. dorm/student residence, homestay, or shared apartment), program duration, and other customizations. Many of our Fellows receive grants, scholarships, or other financial support from their home university to cover at least a portion of the costs associated with living abroad. Fellows may also be eligible to receive academic credit at their university. Finally, some startups will provide a small stipend. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COSTS FOR AIRFARE, MEALS, AND IMMIGRATION SPONSORSHIP AND VISAS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN OUR BASELINE PRICING. Check out our Financial Assistance page for further information about funding opportunities.
*Our part-time semester program prices do NOT include housing, travel/medical insurance, or 24/7 emergency support. These services are provided by the student's study abroad program. If students are interested in these services from Sage Corps, customized pricing is available.
