All J-1 scholars must show funding for their time at William & Mary or VIMS. This is a US government requirement. These estimates are only used for issuing DS-2019 immigration documents, and when applying for a visa.
You must provide copies of financial documents that show that you have funds to come to William & Mary. Your funding is expected to be available during your time here. You will upload your financial documents through iStart.
If you will be paid by William & Mary, that can count as your funding. Your department will provide us with your salary amount.
Federal law also requires that all persons in J-1 and J-2 (dependent) status maintain adequate health insurance for the duration of their stay in the United States.
Funding must be shown for each month that you will be at William & Mary, for you and any dependents (spouse or children) who join you in J-2 status.
You must show $2700 for every month you are here, and $1280 per dependent.

|Scholar + 1 dependent||$3980||$47760|
|Scholar + 2 dependents||$5093||$61120|
|Each additional dependent||$1280||$13360|
