As a nonprofit educational organization, Xperitas is committed to making our immersion programs accessible to as many students from as many backgrounds as possible. Providing financial aid grants to eligible students is one way we can meet our mission of transforming lives through shared intercultural experience.
Financial Aid Eligibility
Financial aid eligibility is based on a participant's financial need. Participants whose families have a household income of $55,000 or less are eligible. The minimum award is 10% of the program cost, and the maximum is 60% of the program cost.
The chart below is a guideline for financial aid eligibility; however, we take into account all of the applicants' circumstances and submitted materials. Students and parents can estimate the amount of financial aid for which they are eligible using the chart below.
|$35,000 – $55,000||up to 15% of total program cost|
|$25,000 – $35,000||up to 20% of total program cost|
|$15,000 – $25,000||up to 35% of total program cost|
|$0 – $15,000||up to 60% of total program cost|
Award amounts will vary depending on the following conditions:
- the amount available in the fund
- the number of applicants who are eligible for financial aid
- the number of dependents in applicant's household
Students must be registered on a 2020 Xperitas program and postmark their complete Financial Aid application no later than October 15, 2019.
