Please contact the sponsoring department or relevant faculty director for further information about course content, pre-requisites, application process and deadlines, dates and costs. 

Wellesley students may participate in no more than one college-sponsored wintersession course abroad. Financial aid is available to eligible students and is awarded in proportion to aid received for study at Wellesley during the academic year. All students receive a grant of $1000 regardless of need. The next $1000 is awarded in the form of a subsidized loan. If this does not cover demonstrated need, any additional aid is awarded in the form of a grant.

Cancellation: Students who withdraw from the program after confirming their participation are liable for a cancellation fee of $200 or the sum of non-recoverable costs, whichever is greater. Financial aid does not apply.
