The Global Leadership Fellows Program is an exchange program where Fellows from American partner universities will be exempted from paying Waseda tuitions and fees. Students only need to pay the tuition fee at their home universities during their stay in Japan. In addition, Fellows will be accommodated in the university dormitory without monthly room charge during their stay at Waseda. Thus Fellows will be responsible for the following expenses:
- Round-trip airfare to and from Japan
- Local transportation in the U.S. (round-trip between home and nearest international ariport)
- Local transportation in Japan between Narita or Haneda Airport and Waseda University
- Administration, membership, and utility fee at the dormitory
- Meals and other living expenses during the program
- Study abroad insurance covering the period of stay in Japan
The following list is designed to assist in calculating the total estimated cost of participation to Global Leadership Fellows Program. The amounts are an estimate of minimum expenses and they can be changed by the exchange rate. Also, this does not include personal entertainment or independent travel.
