Admissions: Financial Aid
For All Families:
The French International School of Philadelphia’s financial aid program is designed to enhance the mission of the school. It ensures that each student who applies for financial aid be granted appropriate consideration. Financial aid grants will be awarded to full-time students within the bounds of the French International School’s financial resources, the highest award amounting to 50% of tuition.
Financial aid is determined by a family’s ability to meet educational expenses. It is based on need, not on willingness or unwillingness to pay.
As a guideline, the French International School’s financial aid committee uses a service called “School and Student Services for Financial Aid” which specializes in reviewing financial aid applications and in determining families’ needs.

For French Citizens:
French families registered at the French Consulate can apply for a scholarship from the French government. Application forms are available during the month of January and can be obtained by calling the school office or the consulate.
The applications with complete documentation must be received at the consulate in early March for the following school year. The exact deadline is published by the consulate each year. In April, a review panel meets in Washington, D.C. to make recommendations based on the families’ income and assets and submits them to the national commission in Paris.
Please note that the review panel meets again in October but exclusively reviews applications presented by French families who moved to our area after the first commission.
