Funding Opportunities

The majority of people who attend our programs are funded by their employers. Of those who are funded from outside sources, some find funding through the local projects of development organizations. Examples of the types of organizations which may be operating in your city include USAID, the World Bank, the Canadian International Development Agency and the United Nations Development Program. Your local EducationUSA advising center, which is supported by the U.S. Department of State, may be able to provide you with additional information on funding available in your city or country.

Generally it is advised that applicants seek funding locally, as very few have had success petitioning the central offices and headquarters of large development agencies unless they are already employed by such agencies.

Candidates should approach their current employer or other funding organizations as soon as possible in order to arrange financial support.
