How can I get help paying for the trip?
If you are a Case Western Reserve University student and receive student loans, you are able to add the cost of the program fee to your student loans.  You should contact Nancy Issa (nancy.issa@case.edu) at the Financial Aid Office about adjusting your loans.  The Department of Bioethics will inform the Financial Aid Office of all students who register for the courses and provide them with a cost breakdown.  The maximum amount of the loan will cover all your travel, the program fee, and an additional $500 for meals and spending.


If you are a non-Case Western Reserve University student, please request financial aid from your home university.  If your university is unable to award you financial aid, contact Nancy Issa (nancy.issa@case.edu) at the Financial Aid Office at Case Western Reserve University to apply for loans.
