A quick reminder before you apply…

You may be able to get help with tuition!

Schools, community groups, and local service clubs are often willing to sponsor delegates. If your school, service club, or community group is not aware of our program, please share our website and contact information with them. Or, let us know how to reach them (organization, name, contact name, club address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) and we’ll provide them with an information packet.

Parents, Grandparents and Students

Many families who are able share in the cost of tuition, or even cover the full amount. All discounts available to clubs and organizations are available to “self pay” students.

Schools and School Districts

If you are unsure about sponsorship, approach your school guidance counselor. Often schools have funds for special offerings such as the World Affairs Seminar.
