Scholarships

APA makes it a priority to incorporate as much as possible into each program so that every student can have the most impactful, engaging, and immersive experience while abroad. Some out-of-pocket expenses though, are unavoidable such as flights and passports.

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 3.25 or greater and show a keen interest in engaging in French and Francophone culture.
