Tuition and Fees at UNC – you have to pay these at UNC or abroad, so in reality there is no difference in cost here (except that on direct exchange programs you only pay 12 credits).
Flight and Travel – in most of the world this can be arranged for $500-1500.
CIE application – depending on which program, this tends to be less than $400

Financial Aid -- If you are applying for a direct exchange program or ISEP program, all of your normal financial aid and scholarships apply to studying abroad. In a few instances, they actually can increase.
MCB Scholarships -- MCB offers scholarships for Business majors studying abroad. This is typically at least $1000 Download the application here (it’s very short and simple). *Note that only students who attend a MCB partner institution are qualified to receive a MCB Study Abroad Scholarship.
