Funding your summer

Admissions at iXperience is merit-based and need-blind. Your eligibility for financial aid is determined entirely by your demonstrated need.

During your application you will need to select if you are applying for financial aid and you will then have to complete a separate application to be eligible.

Financial aid packages can be up to 30% of your summer tuition fee depending on your needs. Applying for financial aid will not impact your admissions decision in any way.

How does financial aid at iXperience work?

iXperience has a need-blind admissions policy, which means we don't consider an applicant's financial situation when making their admissions decision. If you indicate that you'll be applying for aid in the application, you'll have the opportunity to fill out a separate financial aid application after you submit. We grant aid based on an applicant's demonstrated need, which is calculated based on their family income and a variety of other factors.

If your university has a partnership with iXperience, you will need to apply for financial aid through the university study abroad office, if you are not automatically considered.

If we are not in a financial aid partnership with your university, you may apply for aid through iXperience. Do note that if at a later date, a financial aid partnership is established between iXperience and your university, we may revoke aid granted as you then qualify with your university study abroad office.

Should I apply if my parents household income is above $100,000?

There is no official income cut-off for financial aid eligibility. Since eligibility for need-based financial aid is determined by many factors, including the family’s income, family size and number of children in college, we encourage you to apply if you are concerned about your ability to pay.

What does family household income include?

Family income includes both taxed and untaxed income. Total income is based on the Adjusted Gross Income listed on the federal tax return plus all untaxed income (i.e., tax-deferred pension contributions, social security benefits, child support received, tax exempt interest). In cases of divorced or separated families, the incomes from both parents are considered in determining total family income.

Will an additional outside scholarship affect my award?

Yes, additional scholarships may affect the award given to you by iXperience. We will ask you to disclose any other awards you've received before we grant your aid.

I don't think I qualify for aid, but I'm self-funding my education! Can I still apply for financial aid?

Yes, you need to speak to the iXperience admissions department for possible financial aid assistance. You can send us a mail at hello@ixperience.co.za or chat with us using the speech bubble below.

How will my financial aid be disbursed?

If you are awarded financial aid, it will be deducted from your overall program fee.

Do you offer full scholarships?

Unfortunately, we do not offer full scholarships. Our current scholarship structure allows us to provide a greater degree of inclusivity than if we were to offer fewer, full scholarships.

If you're a student, you might also be able to receive funding from your university even if we are not currently in a financial aid partnership. Past students have managed to secure some form of subsidisation simply by approaching their faculty head, study abroad office, or career advisor. We suggest you take the plunge and find out if it would be feasible; we'll provide you with all the documentation you'll need for this.

Where can I look for additional scholarships?

If you're looking for additional funding and you're a student, we'd suggest reaching out to your university. Although we are an external program, some of our past students have secured some form of subsidization from their faculty heads. We'd suggest you take the plunge and find out if it would be feasible; we'll provide you with all the documentation you'll need for this. We've had a few students who, through their own efforts, managed to secure complete funding for the program!

A smart investment in your future.

Make the commitment. Get the results.
