Seminars Financial Information

It is very important that finances are not a hindrance to student participation in Social Concerns Seminars. The mission of the Center for Social Concerns and this program is to provide opportunities for learning to all students. Due to the commitment to this mission and generous benefactors, we will work with you to assure that finances are not a barrier to participate. The process for this is outlined below.

Social Concerns Seminars Fee Timeline

Submit Application 

  • When applying to any Seminar, you’ll have the opportunity to note the need for fee assistance. Indicating that you may need assistance with the seminar fee will in no way impact your application for Seminars student participation.
  • If applying to the Appalachia or the Solidarity and the City Seminars, you will be notified via email of acceptance status on a rolling basis. The acceptance email will contain information regarding fee assistance. 
  • If applying to all other seminars, you will be notified via email of acceptance status shortly after the application deadline. The acceptance email will contain information regarding fee assistance.

Seminar Fees 

  • Seminar fees are either $150 or $300 depending on the nature of the seminar and its community engagement. Your acceptance email will note the specific fee for each seminar.
  • Seminar fees will be sent to Student Accounts during the week following immersion weeks. The charge will appear on your Irish Pay account soon thereafter.

Financial Assistance

  • Please apply to the Seminar first. After acceptance, Seminars staff will contact student about financial assistance options within the university which may include the Center for Social Concerns.
  • Student financial information is kept confidential within appropriate university offices.
  • You should feel free to direct any questions related to fee assistance to Seminars staff, via email,
