Financial Aid and Scholarships
This experience does not carry regular credit, therefore, typical financial aid is unavailable. You may be able to petition for independent study with faculty approval. However:
Anyone applying will be considered for an Ecolab scholarship. Ecolab scholarships of up to $1,000 (20-33% of program cost) are available to Twin Cities undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need. Students from other UMN system campuses should inquire with their departments about potential funding.
