Does anyone have experience with student finance travel grants when doing a year abroad?
I am hoping to get a travel grant to study at Chico state California. However I wondered how this funding works and am quite nervous about booking flights next year as I hear they only reimburse after you have bought the tickets.
Are they very strict about the route you take?
For example, I would rather they fund my flight to LA and I make my way to Chico from there (so I can spend a couple of days seeing sights), but I am wondering if they will only fund me if I fly to a smaller airport nearer the University (LAX is not particularly close)
