The WISL pilot program is funded through a co-contribution model, with participating principals contributing the cost of their flights and visa (estimated to be approximately $2,000 per person*). The Department will fund the balance of the core program costs.
Core program costs include:
Any incidental costs (e.g. passports and incidental spending) are the responsibility of the participating principal.
The Department will also provide a small homestay stipend for hosting an Indian principal in your home for four nights.
*This is approximate only and is reflective of the cost of a standard visa and economy flight, which may vary depending on the needs of the applicant.
