How much does the trip cost?
The total cost of the India SVYM GSL Program will be $4500 - 5000. This includes visa, airfare, tuition, room and board for 8-weeks and airport transportation. We do not want the cost of the program to prevent any interested and qualified student from applying. Students who qualify for financial aid may be eligible for a scholarship through the Global Health Program.
