Prior to the Start of SIG
Because SIG must hire staff and confirm space at its host institutions long before the start of the summer sessions, we are unable to make program refunds to students who cancel after June 1st. If a program is terminated or canceled, SIG will consider the circumstances and may, in its sole discretion, issue a partial refund or credit.
Under no circumstances, medical or otherwise, will SIG refund the $95 application fee due at the time the application is submitted.
Refunds are not provided once the session begins.
Refund Policy - Online Programs
Because SIG must hire faculty prior to the start of the sessions, we are unable to make program refunds to students who cancel less than 1 week prior to the start of the program. No refunds will be made after the start of the program.
Under no circumstances, medical or otherwise, will SIG refund the $25 application fee due at the time the application is submitted.

SIG/NSGT is also pleased to work with other organizations and foundations to provide financial assistance. To apply for these funds, you will need to fill out the financial assistance application. You are automatically entered in the pool of applicants for funds being awarded this year when you complete this application and return it to the SIG office in Stamford. Scholarship award decisions are based on the financial documents provided by you with your application. All financial assistance and scholarship recipients will be notified of the type and amount of award by email.
Financial assistance is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Once funds are exhausted, assistance is no longer available. Be sure to submit your application early. SIG will begin accepting financial assistance applications for summer programs on December 1, 2013. SIG Beyond online financial assistance applications are accepted year round.
