Thanks to alumni and friends of the Junior Year in Munich Program, we're able to provide approximately $65,000 in JYM-sponsored annual scholarships! Due to the provisions of our scholarship funds, nearly all awards are for students in the full-year program.

JYM scholarships

JYM-sponsored scholarships are applied for through the program application. Award decisions are made after the application deadline and individual amounts generally range from $2,000 to $4,000.

General scholarships

Students may apply for these national study-abroad scholarships directly or through their home schools. Scholarships are not only résumé builders writing scholarship applications is good preparation for writing graduate school and job applications.
