The costs associated with our programs cover tuition (including transferable academic credit), accommodation, most meals, and all program-sponsored events.
The additional benefits of our comprehensive programs, including guest lectures, cultural activities, and site briefings add value beyond just the classes and accommodation. The experience, knowledge and contacts you will gain by participating in a TFAS international program will be valuable assets and can increase your earning potential in the job market.
As an educational nonprofit organization we strive to provide as much scholarship funding to as many qualified and deserving students as possible. 85% of students attending TFAS programs are on full or partial awards based on merit and/or need. You’ll see the full costs listed below, but keep in mind that the majority of students receive scholarship funding to help cover a portion of the costs.

The Fund for American Studies strives to make its programs accessible and affordable to the best and brightest students regardless of financial status. More than 85% of students receive scholarship funding to participate in our international programs.
Scholarships are awarded based on a combination for factors including:
- Financial need
- Academic excellence
- Extracurricular achievement
- Leadership activities
Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis, so if you need financial assistance we encourage you to apply before the final application deadline. The scholarship application is available in the online application. Please see the Admissions page for details on how to apply for a scholarship with your application.
While 85% of students receive scholarship support from TFAS, including some full awards, most students will have a remaining balance due. It is important to think about how you will fund your TFAS International experience early in the application process.
We encourage you to take the following steps:
- Talk with your parents, guardians and other family members about their ability to contribute to your participation in the program.
- Research scholarship opportunities on your campus, at your workplace, and in your community, including the honors college, academic departments or other offices that offer scholarships for enrichment programs. Community organizations such as the Rotary Club often assist students in financing their TFAS international experience.
