Global Scholar Tuition and Scholarships

Global Scholar beats all others when it comes to price and quality. Organized by a non-profit organization, we charge just enough to cover our costs. This isn’t a business for us; we’re not out to charge students and their families exorbitant fees to participate. Rather, we see this program as our contribution to empowering a generation to build a better world. Every year, we are able to give partial scholarships totaling $20,000 to over 30 percent of our class.

We want you to join us no matter your circumstance – please get in touch to discuss financial options: globalscholar@aidemocracy.org.
