undergraduates who have completed their first year.

hybrid program. No credit will be given for the DukeEngage component.
Students may not apply to only the DukeEngage portion of the program; they must
apply to the full hybrid program.
FINANCES GEO-U: Students must pay the tuition for the summer program ($5,136 for a two-credit
program) plus a program fee. The program fee varies by location and is listed on the
GEO-U website (http://global.duke.edu/geo). For more information on financial aid and

DukeEngage: All student expenses-- with the exception of airfare and visa fees-- for the
DukeEngage component of the hybrid program are paid for by DukeEngage.
Scholarship, summer financial aid or fellowship funding is not permitted to pay for any
student expenses that occur during the DukeEngage portion of the hybrid program.
FINANCIAL AID Financial Aid is available for the study abroad portion of the program for students who
are eligible for aid during the academic year. Students are limited to receiving summer
aid for up to two summer terms, either abroad or on campus, throughout their time at
Duke. The summer financial aid form is available through the GEO-U on-line
application. Students receiving a summer financial aid award can request an advance of
summer aid to pay for pre-program expenses such as airfare by completing the 'Financial
Aid Advance Form'. Please note that financial aid funding can only be used to pay for
expenses incurred during the study abroad program that are not covered by DukeEngage.
