Program Fees & Funding

Grants & Scholarships

For some program locations and/or languages, partial scholarships are offered. These often stem from alumni whose experience has been life changing and profound and who would like to stay connected with the IUHPFL.

The IUB Department of Germanic Studies consistently offers Graz participants scholarships with funding from the Max Kade Foundation. Such scholarships have ranged in the past from $750-$1,500.

The John and Barbara Busch Scholarship assists North Central High School students who qualify for and participate in the IUHPFL in French. Mr. and Mrs. Busch are graduates of North Central High School (Class of 1969), and Mr. Busch is an alum of the IUHPFL who studied in St. Brieuc in 1968. All North Central High School IUHPFL French participants qualify for the scholarship. No application or demonstration of need is required. It is Mr. and Mrs. Busch's hope that should recipients of this scholarship be in a position to assist others in the future, they simply "pay it forward."  

For students living in northeastern Indiana, the Dave Hefner International Exchange Fund, Inc. helps provide financial assistance for both school approved programs and recognized international travel programs for high school students, which includes the IUHPFL.
