The opportunity to study abroad should be available to everyone, regardless of their financial means. Through merit-based and need-based scholarships, as well as personal fundraising tips and tools, AFS is dedicated to supporting you and your family in every way we can to make studying abroad a reality. Annually, we award scholarships to about half of our study abroad students.
