You can afford Global Citizen Year.
We offer more aid and scholarships for gap year students than any other gap year program.
Global Citizen Year awards both merit and need-based gap year scholarships, and is committed to making this experience accessible. The full gap year's cost of tuition is $32,500. To date, 80% of our Fellows have received a partial scholarship, and 30% of those have received a full ride. We will work closely with you and your family to understand your financial need before determining your financial aid package.
During the application process, you’ll have the opportunity to fill out a simple Financial Aid Application and send us your FAFSA.
Your financial need does NOT factor into admissions decisions. Fellows are chosen according to our Selection Criteria, not their ability to pay or financial need.
