Program Fee
The program fee for Global Link 2019 is $3,500. The fee covers accommodation, program-related transportation within the U.S., daily breakfast and all Global Link activities. JICUF subsidizes the full cost of Global Link by 50%. This allows us to keep the program fee at a more manageable level for participants.

Airfare is not included in the above program fee. 
You are responsible for booking your own tickets. Please make sure to arrive in New York by July 7th, and depart on or after July 27th. (Housing in New York will be booked from July 3rd to 28th. Please feel free to arrive early and enjoy the Fourth of July!)

Please make sure that you do not book your return flight on July 26th. We have activities scheduled on the 26th. 

Students will be housed at the Columbia University Intercultural Resource Center (IRC) during their time in New York City (552 West 114th Street New York, NY 10025). Columbia will provide each guest a twin XL long bed with a desk and room chair.

While in Washington D.C., students will stay in American University’s Cassell Hall. This hall features suite style two and three bedroom units (two beds in each individual room) that have their own living room and bathroom for the guests to share.
