Financial Aid and Scholarships

There are a limited number of merit-based full and partial scholarships for the FMS training and field program for both students and non-student participants. Matriculating students may also be eligible to receive financial aid in the form of loans to cover program tuition and living and travel expenses. Merit scholarships for current Monterey Institute students may be applied if the student is eligible. Participants in the field program will be considered for a monthly living stipend for up to six months.

If you are a Monterey Institute student or a participant taking the program for credit, please contact the Monterey Institute Office of Student Financial Planning to learn more about your individual options at  (831) 647-4119

Past participants have also received outside scholarships to cover the costs of the program. Some who are currently working for development or business organizations have applied directly to their places of work for reimbursement of tuition or program fees.
