Default Paying for USCE

So... I wanted to apply for electives this year, but the whole cost of going, coming back, visas, accommodation, etc, is massive. How do you pay for it?

Are there any scholarships or sponsorships to help with the costs?

Hello! I believe many people take out loans, and others are just more fortunate and are able to pay by cash. Don't be discouraged, taking out a loan for your education is how it's done in the U.S. Remember, this is an investment in your future career. If you really can't afford it, maybe take out a small loan and do at least 1 elective/observership. There are always ways.. save up some money if you can. Good luck!
