Anyone know of any that pay you or are at least affordable?
As far as affordable programs go, check with your college of university. A lot of times they have programs that are pretty affordable. Check into alternative spring break programs, where you go build houses or something in another country. A lot of times campus clubs or orgs will fund raise to help offset some of the cost.
absolutely not, there are a TON of summer undergrad research programs out there. just google summer undergrad research stipend...i think 4k for the summer is pretty common, plus a lot of programs will cover food/travel/housing. specially try NIH, NIDA, and REU programs..some of them can be competitive, especially if you're not a soph/junior, but they're worth applying to
My mistake. You're right, there are plenty of work-study programs that offer stipends. I'm not too sure about pure study-abroad type programs though, where you're not actually doing work or research for the program/host lab. I still think the OP should start with their school's counselor/adviser/study abroad office first. They'll know more about which programs are good or reputable.
The deadline is this month and you must be a US citizen, but there is a research program to work at Pasteur Institute in France...throughout undergrad, I searched for the answer to this question myself and generally found nothing. And as for the advice about doing service work--some of the most ridiculously priced programs were service works. It's amazing what the going rate is these days to save a couple African babies.
The vast majority of these are domestic, but I think there was an REU through the University of Florida that went to France. Again, have to be a US citizen, don't remember the deadline, but worth checking out.
This may be of use:
I'm sure that there are scholarships you can apply to... my school's career center has a whole "study abroad fair" a few times a year, and I think they present about scholarships and such there too...
