Gap Year Financial Aid

Rustic Pathways Gap Year Financial Aid

Every year, Rustic Pathways commits financial aid awards towards meaningful, life-changing gap year experiences for students who demonstrate outstanding merit. The award amount is determined by financial need, our assessment of each candidate’s commitment to success, and the qualities they will bring to a group.

Gap Year Ambassadors are passionate, engaged, and excited about learning new skills and bringing them back to their hometowns and universities. They are hardworking individuals who impress their teachers and peers with their drive and determination. Gap Year Ambassadors go above and beyond expectations. Ambassadors often complete projects of their own choosing, such as a videos, blogs, documentaries, art projects, or service initiatives.

Awarded financial aid may not be combined with any other promotions or special rates. Awarded financial aid is applicable to a single semester program, and students may only submit one application.

Gap year financial aid enrollment is closed for the 2021 year. Please check back for 2022 opportunities soon!

The Golden Lands and World Heritage gap program was hands down one of the best experiences of my life. It was a privilege to get to know the amazing local and international staff who guided us through this experience. I really gained some invaluable knowledge and perspective that I plan to carry with me for years to come.
