Tuition for Global Citizen Year Academy is $5,000 USD. We are proud to award need-based scholarships to qualified applicants of all backgrounds who would not otherwise be able to afford the Academy. We also know that people from the global south and people who identify as BIPOC are underrepresented in positions of leadership and disproportionately impacted by income inequality. Therefore, our scholarships target individuals without the means to afford the Academy, with a need- and demographically-aware philosophy to ensure that we are giving access to traditionally underserved groups.
Each semester, we carefully review all incoming scholarship applications, and regularly have more outstanding candidates than scholarships available.
If you cannot afford the tuition, please indicate below that you would like to apply for a scholarship. If accepted, you'll receive instructions to complete the financial aid application (more info here). We do not factor financial need into our admissions decision.
Students requesting a need-based scholarship to participate in the Academy must complete the financial aid application . Instructions will be emailed to accepted students and can also be found in the Frequently Asked Questions.
