Fees and funding


If an ESRA International program is fully enrolled (20 to 30 students per class), a few scholarships will be offered to students to cover part of their tuition fees (an average of 15%), on the basis of merit and of financial need. Only applicants who have sent a full application will be considered for the scholarships, which are only for students who cannot, even with the financial assistance of their parents or guardians, afford to pay full tuition. Scholarships cover school tuition, not accommodation or travel expenses, which students must be able to cover.
