Global Scholar Tuition and Scholarships

Global Scholar beats all others when it comes to price and quality. 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: globalscholar@ampglobalyouth.org.

Cancellation Policy:

Updated for summer 2020 to take into account the potential impacts of COVID-19.

Cancellation requests received within 30 days of the start date of your selected Global Scholar program are not eligible for a refund. Cancellation requests received less than 60 days but more than 30 days prior to the start date of your selected Global Scholar program will be eligible for a refund of 50% of the amount you paid (excluding your non-refundable application fee). Please note that space in our programs is very limited, and we negotiate and contract with vendors well in advance of the actual program. All cancellations must be submitted to Karen at GlobalScholar@AMPGlobalYouth.org

Note: Our campus host American University is independently monitoring the public health situation surrounding Coronavirus and responding to recommendations from the CDC and Washington D.C. Department of Health. Should a policy decision by American University result in American University’s inability to host the program, we will refund 100% of the amount you paid minus the non-refundable application fee. In the event that a policy decision by American University results in closure of their campus at any point during the course of your selected Global Scholar program, we will refund a pro-rated amount of your program fee for the full and/or partial days for which we are unable to provide programming.
