HNGR Tuition and Funding

Program Costs

HNGR students are required to pay tuition for the credit and living expenses during the internship. Because of the reduced course load and lower cost of living in the Majority World, interns may find that their internship is less expensive than a typical Wheaton semester. The following is an estimate of the typical costs of a HNGR internship:

Financial Aid

All HNGR students are eligible for financial aid. Grants, scholarships, and loans that would normally apply to a Wheaton semester also apply to the HNGR internship semester. 

Scholarships and Grants

Resources from the John Stott Human Needs and Global Resource Scholarship Endowment may be applied to assist HNGR students who demonstrate financial need.  In addition, all HNGR students receive assistance from the John Stott Endowment Merit Grants to help with additional expenses during the Fall internship semester.  There are several other scholarships available to HNGR students based on merit or exceptional need.  These funds are managed through the Financial Aid Office.
