Academic Scholarships

The Flywire Charitable Foundation aims to improve equality, access and affordability for underrepresented individuals and communities.

Celebrating our scholars & evolving our Foundation

Since its inception in 2020, the Flywire Charitable Foundation's academic scholarship program has helped international college students from over 15 countries pursue their academic dreams by easing the financial burden of attaining higher education. Thousands of students applied, and we proudly granted hundreds of thousands of dollars for the next generation of leaders to put toward tuition and other education-related expenses.

The impact of our scholarship program has surpassed our wildest expectations, empowering students to overcome financial barriers and realize their full potential. While we are immensely proud of the impact this program has made, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue our scholarship program in 2024 as we continue to evolve as both a company and a Foundation. While we bid farewell to this program with a heavy heart, we do so knowing that it has left an indelible mark on the lives of those we have had the privilege to support.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the students who have applied to our scholarship program, and to the winners who have demonstrated exceptional talent, dedication, and leadership across the academic disciplines of global health, social justice, global citizenship, and sustainability. Your achievements continue to inspire us, and we are honored to have played a role in supporting your educational journey.

While our scholarship program may come to a close, our commitment to improving equality, access, and affordability for underrepresented communities remains unwavering. Stay tuned for updates on our future initiatives!

Social justice

The Social Justice Scholarship honors students who are passionate about addressing systemic inequalities and promoting social justice. As social justice issues, including but not limited to: policing, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, religious persecution, sexism, racism and sexual violence continue to dominate the world news, the need for significant social justice reform has only increased. These scholarships were awarded to student leaders who are committed to eradicating racism, violence, systemic biases and other acts of intolerance.

Global health

The Global Health Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to promoting health and wellbeing on a global scale. It aims to support those who are dedicated to addressing health disparities and improving access to healthcare in underprivileged communities. Recipients of this scholarship are expected to use their education and skills to advance the cause of global health and promote healthcare equity. They may also be expected to engage in research and advocacy to address global health challenges and develop innovative solutions to improve health outcomes around the world.

Global citizenship

The Global Citizenship Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to promoting global citizenship and cultural understanding around the world. As global conflicts have escalated across the world stage, it’s important now more than ever to elevate humanity when addressing challenges across social, political, and economic issues. Scholarships in this category have been awarded to students who work to break down cultural barriers and promote mutual respect and understanding among people from diverse backgrounds in their communities and the world.

Environmental sustainability

The Environmental Sustainability scholarship recognizes students who work to protect the environment and pioneer sustainability initiatives. The most critical resource that we have is a healthy planet, yet the ongoing threats to environmental health continue to endanger our livelihood. Scholarships in this category have been awarded to students who are actively working to reduce the environmental impact of human-made activities and preserving Earth’s natural resources all future generations.

Congratulations to all of our past winners!
