Probably one of the most frequently asked questions is: Can I afford it?
With very few exceptions the answer is YES. With careful planning and monthly payments instead of one lump payment, traveling to foreign locations is possible! Below are a few suggestions to help you finance your adventure.
Ask the International Studies Program Chair about Fundraising Opportunities (email@example.com)
Set up a crowd funding site (i.e. www.GoFundMe.com or www.fundmytravel.com)
Ask family/friends if they would like to donate
Think about your day-to-day spending habits.
When you go to buy something, ask yourself - "Do I really need this, or do I just want this?" If the answer is "I just want this", put that money in your travel fund. You would be amazed at how quickly money can accumulate in a month.
