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 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summer 2020 Session Dates will be announced by October 1, 2019. Please check back or sign up for notifications from us and we’ll let you know as soon as the 2020 dates and application are live. Thank you!
