You can afford Global Citizen Year.
We offer more aid than any other gap year program.
Global Citizen Year offers both merit and need-based scholarships, and is committed to making this experience accessible. The full 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.
If you’re admitted to Global Citizen Year, we will work with you and your family to understand your financial need before determining your financial aid package. You’ll receive your financial aid award with your admissions decision.
