Your family might find it difficult to pay all or part of the program fee. That should not discourage you from applying. There is no application fee.
If you are admitted, your parent or guardian may apply for financial aid at that time
(this provision applies to U.S. students only - international applicants must apply for aid with the rest of their application by the deadline).
Depending on your family's overall financial circumstances, including other educational expenses for you and any siblings,
we award generous aid up to the full program fee plus up to $500 for airfare.
Every year a third to a half of admitted students receive financial aid, including many who attend at no charge, thanks to the generosity of alumni, their parents, former faculty, and other friends of SSP.
The Financial Aid Application instructions and form are the last two pages of the application document,
and is also available as a separate download.
