AFS is committed to providing opportunities for young people to participate in programs regardless of their financial situation. That's why AFS works with a wide variety of corporate and community sponsors to help finance AFS programs through scholarships.
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.
