Need-based federal financial aid (Pell grants, Stafford loans, etc.), for financial aid eligible students, is available from JYF, in complement to financial aid you may receive through your home college or university. State grants (from such states as Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and the District of Columbia) may also be available. We encourage you to find other sources of funding as well.
The student’s home college will normally process the federal financial aid application. Students should therefore first contact their own financial aid office. Many colleges allow their institutional aid to be applied to JYF in Paris.
Students who need assistance but who are not allowed to transfer their college’s aid funds to study abroad, may apply to JYF by providing the documentation indicated in the JYF financial aid application form. Please carefully review the JYF financial aid instructions and return the required documentation by May 1st for the fall/full year or by November 15th for the spring semester. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
You should check with your financial aid office about other potential sourves of financing.
