The purpose of financial aid at FAIS is to support the School’s mission by promoting student body diversity. Anyone may apply for financial aid at FAIS. Awards are based on relative need. Due the large number of applications submitted and an effort to assist as many families as possible, FAIS grants tend to be relatively small. Those who are also eligible for the French Bourse are asked to complete that application process before applying for a FAIS-based grant. All applications are considered in the strictest confidence.
