Costs & Financial Aid

One of the benefits of the WLP are that costs are approximately the same as a semester in Bloomington. Although living in Washington, DC is generally more expensive than living in Bloomington, the primary costs (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.
