Total expected cost paid to UC is $2550. The actual cost for UC is $4200, but this will be offset by a $1000 grant from University Honors as well as a $650 grant from UC International, making the actual total expected cost around $2550. All participants will receive the grants.

Costs do not include tips (est. $25.00) passport, some meals (at airports, in Nairobi), some snacks, vaccinations (Yellow Fever vaccination required), personal supplies (bug spray, sunscreen, etc.), souvenirs, or ISIC (international student identity card, $25).

Vaccinations and Health Precautions
Contact your physician to discuss what vaccinations and heath precautions (like taking antibiotics with you or malaria prevention) are recommended.
Yellow Fever vaccination is required. All participants must be vaccinated and carry with them proof of yellow fever vaccination.
In addition, look at the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) webpages on Tanzania and Kenya (most of your time will be spent in Tanzania, but the group will fly into and out of Nairobi, Kenya).
