Costs & Financial Aid

The cost of a semester in the Washington Leadership Program is approximately the same as a semester in Bloomington. Although living in Washington, D.C., is generally more expensive than living in Bloomington, your primary costs of tuition and housing will be comparable, if not the same. Most internships are not paid, though there are a variety of grants and scholarships available for IU students working in unpaid internships.
