Winterline Program Fees & Scholarships

Program Fees

Winterline Global Education offers the highest quality gap programs for students age 18-22. We offer exceptional skills-based experiences that are designed to help you succeed in college, identify your passions, and build competence for lifelong success.

Our 9-month Global Skills Gap Year Program is inclusive and includes all skills-training and program fees, international and in-country travel, curricular materials, food, lodging, emergency medical and evacuation insurance, and related expenses during the program.

Your only additional expenses for this program will be: personal expenses (during free days or expenses of a personal nature), travel-related immunizations, passport and visa fees, and flights travel to and from the program departure and return locations.

Our shorter skills programs include all in-program skills-training, most meals, lodging, and emergency medical and evacuation insurance.

Semester and summer programs do not include flights to and from program destinations.

Please view each program page for specific details about what is included or contact us at 888-737-4226 or at with any questions.

To help offset the financial commitment, we offer both merit and needs based scholarships, as well as a variety of work study scholarships, outlined below.

To be considered, students should complete the needs based scholarship form, and/or the work study scholarship form as part of their program application process.

If a scholarship or financial aid package has been awarded, details of the offer will be provided once a student has been accepted into the program.

Additionally, you can use your 529 College Savings Plan or AmeriCorps Education Award to cover the costs of your Winterline Global Skills 9-Month Gap Year Program thanks to our partnership with Western Colorado University.
