Information for Students
Looking to study abroad for only 2-3 weeks during the summer or winter break? You're in luck - Washington College Faculty members do run several short-term trips like these during the breaks.

Cost varies by program, and is usually a flat fee covering all transportation and accommodation fees and the College’s off-campus study fee for short-term programs (currently $445). These program fees are separate from a student’s standard tuition costs. Short-Term, Faculty-Led Abroad Program fees are eligible to be offset or covered by various Washington College scholarship and grant opportunities, such as the Cater Society for Junior Fellows. There is no limit to how many Short-Term, Faculty-Led Programs a student can participate in.
Each trip does not run every year – some run every other year. Please contact the program’s Faculty Leader(s) for details regarding program frequency.
Specific questions regarding application, trip details, or pricing should be directed to the program’s Faculty Leader(s), but the Global Education Office is available to answer any questions regarding travel abroad.
