Guidelines on Funding and Financial Aid

For the benefit of the delegates involved, FACES seeks to ensure a dynamic Annual Summit with the highest standards of dialogue and exchange, FACES understands that diversity and access is vital to meeting this goal. For that reason, we have tried to minimize the financial burden caused by attending our programs.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, FACES has kept all of its programs free. Delegates do not have to pay for accommodation, foods, or transportation costs during the Summit.

For our delegates, the majority of the cost of attending the FACES Summit comes from traveling to Stanford and China. FACES is committed to subsidizing travel costs for delegates with demonstrated needs.

In case you need financial aid, our financial aid staff will contact you once you have been admitted. In the past, FACES has provided delegates financial aid packages that ranged from $100 to $800. Financial aid averages $250 among those who meet eligibility requirements, and it is rare for FACES to give more than $600. Over half our delegates each year typically receive partial or full financial aid. Regardless of your needs, we highly encourage you to apply.
