We are very pleased to announce that we have a full portfolio of Summer 2022 and Fall 2022 Year and Semester programs available on our website for new applicants! Click here to see our list of available 2022 Summer Programs! Click here to see a list of our available Year and Semester programs for Fall 2022!
Please keep in mind that applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and programs are first come first served. For this reason, we no longer have public facing application deadlines but instead encourage anyone interested in a program to begin their application right away, or reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
Similarly to last year, we will post any communications to applicants and parents regarding summer programs and their viability in MyAFS so you have access to this information. It is our great hope that we will be able to move forward with Summer programs as planned this year, but we remain vigilant in monitoring program viability and will remain flexible.
Spring 2021 applicants are participating in their Program Preparation webinars and we continue to communicate host family placements as they come in, work on visa and residence permit preparation/acquisition, and finalize participant acceptance. At this time, we do not foresee any of our Year and Semester programs being newly impacted by COVID-19. We are sharing with applicants and parents the most up to date information about entry requirements, quarantine, PCR testing/vaccinations and in country regulations that we have, when we have it.
Due to the impact of the pandemic, AFS-USA continues to have limited national scholarships available during this period of recovery. We are encouraging local teams to update their local scholarship information and use those scholarships to award participants from their teams.
AFS-USA is no longer able to offer to Global Leaders Scholarship, but has maintained its relationship with FAST, which is the system that can determine financial aid qualifications for applicants. Please contact the study abroad team (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have further questions about this or want more information.
