All related costs of your participation in the Institute and your stay in the United States will be covered by the Middle Eastern Partnership Initiative's Student Leaders Program. All required books and educational materials will be provided to you upon arrival at the University of Delaware.

Itis unlikely that you will need any additional funds during your stay, though you are welcome to bring extra money if you prefer.You will receive cash disbursements.

The Institute will pay the costs of your domestic transportation, including vehicle travel, airfare to study tour locations as well as all lodging expenses in Delaware and elsewhere. Participants will be provided with a daily per diem when in Delaware and while traveling on the study tour, which covers meals and incidental costs. When determining your personal budget for the program, please keep in mind that most airlines only allow you to check one bag weighing 23kg or less for free. Therefore, any additional luggage that you check on your international flight to/from the US will result in additional fees (usually $100-150 per bag), so we suggest that you budget and pack accordingly.
