study abroad 101: how to budget while studying abroad

This week on the blog I’ll be continuing my “Study Abroad 101” series with a not-as-fun post, but one that’s really important: how to budget your money while studying abroad.  While figuring out where you’re going to study abroad is fun, the next steps—like figuring out how to pay for four months in another country—can be a more difficult conversation to have.
