Financial Aid Opportunities
American Councils offers financial aid for all programs, including Diversity Scholarships, Need-Based Scholarships, and program-specific scholarships. American Councils can also work with students to accept university funding towards the program cost. Past program participants have successfully applied additional outside sources of financial aid, including Fund for Education Abroad Scholarships and Gilman Scholarships to further reduce their out-of-pocket costs.

Deadline: February 15, 2019 for all three programs.
