How We’re Funded
Global Citizen Year is structured as a 501(c)3 non-profit because our bottom line is our social impact. We believe that potential is equally distributed, regardless of where someone is born, and we are committed to providing access and opportunity for the most promising young leaders we can find.
Our hybrid business model combines fee-for-service (through tuition), and philanthropic investments to support our Fellowship Fund. To date, over 80% of our Fellows have received need-based financial aid from this Fund with nearly 30% participating on fully funded Fellowships.
We are incredibly grateful for the generous support that enables us to make a Global Citizen Year accessible to young people from all socioeconomic backgrounds.
