How much does the trip cost and what do I have to pay for?
The cost of the trip is $450 per student. The student’s contribution of $450 covers the round-trip airfare, hotel accommodation in Doha, all meals, activities, visa fees, and in-country transport.
Students are responsible for securing their own passports, which must be valid through September 2018, six months beyond their departure date in March 2018. Those selected must be able to provide a color copy of their passport by December 1, 2017.
Should I still apply to IMPAQT if the financial contribution is too high?
Absolutely! Your ability to pay is not considered by the selection committee, comprised of active IMPAQT members and members of the Division of Student Affairs. The cost of the trip should not serve as a barrier to any student who is interested in applying. The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to sending students to Doha through the IMPAQT program regardless of their financial situation.
If the personal contribution presents financial challenge, please submit a letter detailing your extenuating circumstances directly to Renee Camerlengo, Associate Dean of Student Affairs: firstname.lastname@example.org. All financial concerns will be kept confidential and are separate from the selection process.
