Scholarships

Studying abroad can be a costly endeavor. For some, it may seem way out of reach. At APA, we understand that you are faced with a range of expenses that aren’t covered by financial aid, including visa fees, travel costs, and more.

 

To help ease this burden, we’re pleased to offer scholarships for students who demonstrate high academic achievement and leadership. To be considered, you must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 or greater, show a keen interest in engaging in French and Francophone culture, and have a serious desire to take part in a full- immersion program.
