DOES DEAN RUSK PROVIDE FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR STUDY ABROAD THROUGH ITS TRAVEL GRANTS?
Dean Rusk travel grants only support summer study abroad. The program does not make grants to support study abroad during the academic year. If you apply for a grant to support summer study abroad, please remember that grant amounts vary considerably and they tend to range from $1,000.00 - $3,000.00. Independent projects have a higher priority and generally receive more funding than group excursions. Davidson-sponsored summer programs will receive higher priority than third party provider study abroad programs.
The fact that the Dean Rusk Program has made grants to support participation in a specific program in the past does not guarantee that the program will be able to do so in the future. Budgetary conditions and demand for grant support varies from year to year.
Davidson College Study Abroad Program Policies
Regarding Withdrawal, Cancelations, and Refunds
If a student withdraws from a Davidson College study abroad program or is required by the College to withdraw, the following payments will be assessed:
If withdrawal occurs between the time of deposit and the beginning of the Davidson College study abroad program, the amount of deposit will be retained by the College, as well as any funds already committed on behalf of the student. Committed funds are 1) monies that the program has already paid to a service provider, and/or 2) monies that the program has agreed to pay a service provider on terms that cannot be modified.
If withdrawal occurs on or after the beginning date of a semester or a summer program, for any reason, no refund of the semester or summer program cost is issued.
If withdrawal occurs on or after the beginning date of the first semester of an academic year program, for any reason, no refund of the first semester cost is issued. If withdrawal occurs on or after the beginning date of the second semester of an academic year program, no refund of the full academic year cost is issued.
If a student receiving federal aid withdraws from a Davidson College off-campus study program, the federal aid funds will be treated according to applicable federal regulations. Detailed rules and laws related to these calculations are available upon request from the Office of Admission and Financial Aid.
If Davidson College cancels one of its study abroad or domestic off-campus study programs before a program starts, a full refund of the program cost will be issued.
If Davidson College or one of its study abroad or domestic off-campus study program partners must suspend a program in progress, yet coursework may be completed, no refund will be issued for tuition. A partial refund may be issued for non-academic program costs in the event of an early program closure. If coursework may not be continued as a result of a program cancelation, a refund of program cost will be issued.
The College offers tuition-refund insurance during the academic year for Davidson College study abroad programs through AWG Dewar, Inc. Detailed information may be obtained by calling 617-774-1555 or online at College Refund.
