Financial Support

Exchange is for everyone!

We understand that for some Canadian families, sending their son or daughter on a study abroad seems like an impossible dream. That's why YFU tries to keep its costs as low as possible, to stay accessible to students from all walks of life.

While we do not offer any full-ride scholarships, there are options available for students who need a little extra help with funding. And even if you don't qualify for official financial support, that doesn't mean that exchange is impossible for you! Sponsorship and fundraising, including crowdfunding, are other options to consider.

Ineligible for financial support?

Don't give up! YFU's global website offers many ideas for how you can make it there without a traditional scholarship!
