Scholarship Giving

Make a world of a difference in students' lives by providing study abroad programs to young people everywhere. Did you know that about 50 percent of our students depend on need and/or merit-based scholarships to participate in our programs? See the immediate impacts of your gift when you provide scholarships to promising U.S. students. Here are a variety of ways you can provide a scholarship:

Unrestricted Scholarships

When you give to our Unrestricted Scholarship Fund, you help provide scholarship dollars to students in programs that need funding the most.

Restricted Scholarships

With a minimum contribution of $10,000, donors may choose to restrict a scholarship. Through restricting your scholarship, you can set specific criteria for how you want your gifts to be used. For example, you can provide scholarships for students from a geographic area, or provide scholarships for students who will be studying abroad in a specific program or country* just to name a few examples.

Faces of America Scholarships

AFS-USA works toward a more just and peaceful world by providing international education programs. Through our Faces of America Scholarship, we are able to award diverse, high-achieving students from low-income families the opportunity to study abroad. We work with community-based organizations (CBO) in underrepresented communities, to further our reach in communities, and to make study abroad accessible for all U.S. students.

Learn more about the scholarship and donate to Faces of America. You can also establish a named AFS-USA Faces of America Scholarship by contributing a minimum annual contribution of $10,000 in cash or stock each program year. Contact us to learn more about these giving opportunities.
