KEI Financial aidKEI offers grants, scholarships, payment plans and early enrollment discounts. Click on each item below for more information about KEI aid. Students can also use their federal and state financial aid, in most cases, and university/college aid, in some cases. Additional grants and scholarships are available from government and foundations. Visit the Financing Study Abroad to learn more about non-KEI funding for study abroad. KEI Affiliate Grant KEI has affiliations with more than 60 universities and colleges. One of these may be yours. Students who attend a KEI-affiliated university or college may receive a $1000 grant. Affiliate grants may be combined with other grants, scholarships, promotions and payment plans offered by KEI.
Visit KEI sending institutions page to view a list of KEI-affiliated universities and colleges. If your institution is currently not affiliated, we will work with you to facilitate an affiliation so that you can take advantage of this grant.
KEI Scholarship The KEI Scholarship Program offers awards of $500 to $1,000 US per term. Awards are based on merit and need. To be considered a candidate, students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, demonstrate leadership potential, be involved in extracurricular activities and show financial need. In choosing scholars, preference will be given to those who apply early and those applying for two or more semesters of study abroad. The decision of the selection committee is final and is not subject to appeal. The deadline for scholarship applications is the same as the deadline for program applications.
To apply for a KEI Scholarship, students must submit the following supporting documents with the KEI Application Form:
KEI-Turkish Coalition Grant The Turkish Coalition of America makes available ten $2000 grants per semester for KEI program participants in Istanbul, Turkey. Summer program grants of $1000 are also available. Eligible students must submit a grant application with their KEI Application documents. Grants are awarded on a rolling basis, so apply early.
Consecutive Term Grant A $500 grant is automatically awarded to students participating in consecutive summer, semester, quarter and/or trimester programs (ex: Spring and Summer, Summer and Fall, etc.). This grant can be used for programs in the same or different locations. The grant will be applied to the last term of study. Students can participate in program excursions during their first or consecutive term of study, but not both. The $500 grant has already been factored into the fee for academic year programs.
GO Again Grant KEI program alumni who study abroad again with KEI will receive a $500 grant for semester and academic year programs, and a $250 grant for summer programs. The Go Again Grant is applied towards the program fee and cannot be combined with the Consecutive Term Grant.
Early Enrollment Discount It's simple. Apply and enroll in a KEI program before the application deadline and the application fee of $100 will be deducted from the program price. Enrolling early also locks in the program fee on the date your application is completed as long as this date does not exceed six months prior to the program start date and you meet all program deadlines. You also benefit from early course selection and internship placement.
The rules are simple.
Payment Plans KEI offers interest-free payment plans to qualified students. Qualification requirements are decided by KEI on an individual basis. The maximum allowed amount for the KEI Payment Plan is $2,000 US per term of study. In general, payment is divided into five monthly installment of $400 US. Other options are also available depending on individual circumstances. We will work out a plan that meets your financial situation. For more information about payment plans, please contact a KEI advisor.
