Sponsor A Student

How much do I have to contribute to sponsor a student?

Contributions of any value are welcome and have already enabled students to join GLA programs. If you wish to sponsor a student, please email us.

Can I choose the student I wish to sponsor?

If you choose to fully sponsor a student, you may allocate sponsor funds in 2 distinct ways: (i) directly choose the person you know and want to sponsor or (ii) allow GLA to distribute it to one of our scholarship candidates. Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible and provide options for students who may not otherwise be able to afford the program. This increases the cultural and socio-economic diversity of participants and enhances the experience for all.

How does GLA select students for scholarships?

Scholarship recipients are selected based on financial need. In order to apply for a scholarship, students must submit a Financial Aid Form and copies of their parents' income tax filings from the last two years, along with their program application. Unfortunately, GLA does not directly offer any full-fee scholarships. Full-fee scholarships are distributed through selected partner organizations.
