There are full and part scholarships available. With a few exceptions, destinations are not restricted. Scholarships are available to travel overseas with AFS Intercultural Programs on short and long-term programs across 57 countries worldwide. Scholarships are available for all students looking for a life changing experience abroad.
Competition for scholarships varies and recipients are selected on a variety of factors including cultural awareness, community involvement and consistent academic achievement.
What are you looking to apply for?
- Program Discounts
There are a variety of program discounts available, including early bird and family discounts.
- Company Scholarships
These scholarships are offered by corporate sponsors and have very specific eligibility criteria in regards to what kind of students can apply (usually these are only available to students with family members who are employees of those companies).
- Public Scholarships
These scholarships are offered by corporate sponsors or AFS, and are open to any student, so long as they meet the general eligibility criteria for AFS programs.
What if I don’t receive a scholarship?
AFS offers excellent scholarship opportunities. Hundreds of candidates apply for scholarships each year but unfortunately not everyone can be awarded one. Even though you might not be awarded a scholarship you might still decide to participate on an AFS Program. If you and your family decide that you will continue your participation, contact the AFS Sending Team to discuss your program options.
