The good news is that for tuition and housing, study abroad programs usually cost the same or even less than a semester at UAB! But we get it; you need more ideas, more inspiration, and more money. Keep reading for creative ways to raise money for your study abroad adventure of a lifetime...
WAYS TO PAY FOR STUDY ABROAD
Ask for money instead of gifts during birthdays or holidays
What are you good at? Cooking? Guitar? School? People will pay to learn!
Charge an entry fee into the potluck and spice it up with food from your future host country
Have a fun night hosting karaoke or a comedy show, just get creative!
Foreign film documentary night or just a fun movie, offer refreshments
Get people or businesses to donate items, then host a silent auction
Have a yard sale! And think of ways to make use of your car while abroad...unless you sell that too!
Sell ads to local businesses! $50 for a pic of logo by a telephone booth, $200 by Big Ben
Pre-sell handmade guidebooks to your host country. Don't limit yourself to just friends and family!
