Scholarships & Financial Aid

Please scroll down to view our current scholarships and financial aid options.

We want to make our programs as accessible as possible. Although we charge the minimum we can for our programs, we recognize that they can still be difficult to fund for many families. Please note that these scholarships go directly towards the tuition costs for the program and do not include assistance towards the cost of international flights. We expect scholarship recipients to demonstrate their commitment to this opportunity by fundraising for their international flights, personal spending, and the balance of tuition.

Our students supplement the program costs in a variety of ways. We encourage you to get creative! Create a Kickstarter, find a part-time job, fundraise. Think big and small. Each dollar adds up to one amazing adventure abroad.

External Scholarships

The Gap Year Association has an extensive guide on scholarships that are available for students. Go check them out!


A popular tool for fundraising is Fund My Travel, where you set up your own fundraising page, share this with family and friends, and encourage them to support your experience by donating towards your travel costs.

Financial Aid & Grants

There are numerous financial aid options available to those who are already enrolled in college/university and plan to take academic credit or those who organize their own independent/field study or internship while on the program. We suggest that you speak with your school’s financial aid office to see if you can transfer your existing grants or loans to cover some of the costs of our tuition.

If you have not already applied for financial aid you should check to see if you are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunities Grant (SEOG grant), Federal Stafford Loan, Federal Perkins Loan, and Parent PLUS Loans for Undergraduate Students.
