A PayPal / credit card option is available for full payment only by November 1. More details are available on the registration page.

Financial Aid

Kim Roy and FOGO are committed to the goal of every student going on the trip.  Limited financial aid resources should not be a barrier to a student’s participation.  We encourage a flexible payment option to pay over a longer period if this can help make the trip more affordable.  Where further assistance is needed, FOGO will provide financial assistance.  When you register for the trip, under the payment plan section, please select that you request financial assistance.  You will then be contacted by a member of the Financial Aid Committee and provided with a financial aid application.

Please submit financial aid applications by November 1.  All applications are kept confidential.  If you have further questions about financial assistance, please contact Bonnie Steele at
