Sweet Briar College JYF in Paris

Financial Aid

Federal regulations permit students on approved study abroad programs to apply for Federal financial aid through their home college or their host (study abroad) college. For financial aid purposes an approved program is one approved for credit by the student’s home institution. Sweet Briar College, however, will not process Federal financial aid (Pell grants, Stafford loans, etc.) for students from other institutions.

Application Process

The student’s home college will normally process the federal financial aid application.Your first step should, therefore, be to contact your Financial Aid Office, inquire about the procedure and submit the necessary financial aid forms.

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 to JYF in Paris by March 15 for fall/full year applicants or October 15 for spring applicants.
