Create a Budget

Time to budget!  Are you just starting to plan?  Have you received a scholarship yet?  Are you saving money in anticipation of your study abroad?

If you would like to know the total cost/budget for the program you will be applying for please visit the program specific brochure page and click on the link that says Fall or Spring budget sheets.

In order to help you budget, Emory College Study Abroad has created a spending diary for students to monitor their spending habits while abroad.  Just input the amount spent into the Excel sheet every day and the excel sheet will automatically calculate the amount you've spent on a weekly basis. Try this budgeting exercise before you go abroad to determine your spending patterns. The first month while you are abroad use the budget sheets to ensure you don't overspend!
