SYA Fund

Each year, SYA’s very first fiscal priority must be to deliver a superb academic and student life experience.


Why should you make a gift to SYA?

The SYA Fund is the primary way in which our community comes together to support students and faculty. In an average year, tuition only covers approximately 85% of expenses. We rely on the generosity of the SYA community provide the remaining funds needed to run our campuses.

What do these expenses include? Just about everything!

The SYA Fund supports travel experiences, fieldwork, extracurriculars, teachers, host families, financial aid, campus maintenance and so much more. Without it, we simply could not provide the exceptional study abroad experience SYA is known for.

Your participation matters.

The collective participation of alumni, parents, faculty and friends strengthens the SYA experience and ensures that our students are well prepared as global citizens.

We know that each member of our community has different means. Your participation is what matters! Consider making a gift of an amount that is meaningful to you.

Each year, gifts to the SYA Fund range from $5 to $50,000. No gift is too small and all gifts make a difference across our campuses.

How to make your impact!

The SYA Fund follows our academic calendar, which runs from July 1  June 30 each year.

One-time and recurring gifts may be made online via credit card or digital wallet options. Prefer to send a check or give another way? View all of the ways to make a gift here.
