JYM Scholarships

You'd be hard-pressed to find a study abroad program in Germany that distributes $50,000 in scholarship awards annually. But we do — thanks to alumni and friends of JYM who believe that study abroad should be an affordable opportunity for everyone. JYM is able to provide scholarships to students in need of financial assistance from both state universities and private colleges/universities.

Full-Year Program: Scholarship assistance is available for students on the full-year program only. Awards generally range from $1000 to $4000 (the average award in 2013/14 was $3757). All students are eligible to apply for JYM scholarships. JYM Scholarship Deadlines are the same as Application Deadlines. Please note that award decisions are not made until after the application deadline.
