Financial Aid

MUNUC believes that cost should not be a barrier to educational opportunity, and is pleased to offer need-based financial aid to schools and individual delegates.

If the cost of attending MUNUC will be prohibitive for your delegation, we encourage you to fill out a financial aid estimate form, in order to get a better sense of how much assistance we would be able to provide. Your school does not need to register for MUNUC first to submit this form.

The expected costs of MUNUC include, but are not limited to, a school registration fee, individual delegate fees, travel arrangements, hotel expenses, and food for the weekend. We are able to offer financial aid in the form of school registration and/or individual delegate fee waivers, hotel vouchers, and travel reimbursements. Aid can be offered to entire delegations or to individual students. In the case of individual students, aid will be given to the school in the name of the student.

There are two separate portions of to our financial aid process: a school information form, and a student information form. Instructions can be found on the first sheet of the forms – advisors should complete the school information form and distribute the student information forms to students applying for financial aid.

In order to ensure that your financial aid decision gets back to you as soon as possible, please email completed documents to financialaid@munuc.org.  Applications are due October 27, 2017, and financial aid decisions will be returned to schools by November 3.

Payment & Refunds

All payments must be made by wire, credit card, or check; we do not accept cash payments. For credit card and wire payments, please inquire at cfo@munuc.org. Checks should be made out to  “Model United Nations of the University of Chicago.”

Send payments to the following address:

United States of America

MUNUC will refund delegate fees in the case of cancellation up until December 15. Refunds are not applicable for deposit fees or the school registration fee.
