Financial Aid

At SFS, we are committed to giving students of all backgrounds the opportunity to study international affairs. Over 50% of our graduate students receive some funding from Georgetown University in order to attend. Our students also utilize external funding opportunities from private foundations and government fellowships, in addition to loans.
