EXPLO Financial Aid 2019 (International)

EXPLO Financial Aid EXPLO is serious about financial aid. For us, making sure that students from all walks of life — geographic, socio-economic, cultural — are able to attend our summer programs is paramount, so we work incredibly hard to provide as many grants and scholarships to as many qualified students as possible. The financial aid process is quite competitive. Please take a moment to read through this and the following pages to better understand the differences between grants and scholarships, the criteria necessary to apply for each, and the path that makes the most sense for your family. Grant or Scholarship? Families who are able to afford the program but are looking to defray a portion of the tuition should apply for a grant. They should not apply for a scholarship. Scholarships are for students who are not able to attend EXPLO without a significant financial award. The chart below outlines the key differences between grants and scholarships based on our Exploration Programs. On the following pages, we outline the differences for each program option in further detail.
