Paying for It
Program Grants are a great way to supplement the cost of your destination. Simply fill out a B252 form with all of the required information (costs, money-earning activities you've already done, etc), and the Program Grants Panel will review your request. Grants are not intended to cover the entire cost of your trip, but can definitely give you a boost if any of your money-earning plans fall through.
