Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies

City Year is proud to partner with Georgetown University's School of Continuing Studies, offering annual 15% and 25% tuition scholarships to all admitted City Year applicants.

Former City Year members bring unique, valuable perspectives to the classroom through their experiences serving systemically under-resourced communities across the country. In keeping with Georgetown’s Catholic and Jesuit heritage and informed by its commitment to living in service to others, the School of Continuing Studies honors those who have served for at least one term with City Year by applying a tuition discount to eligible students.
