City Year

SIT Graduate Institute is a proud University Partner of City Year. As such, we provide scholarships to qualified corps members, alumni, and staff interested in pursuing a graduate degree at SIT. The partnership highlights the shared visions and values of City Year and SIT.


  • A scholarship of at least $7,500 for part-time hybrid programs and $10,000 for global master’s programs will be awarded to all City Year applicants who pursue a master’s degree at the School for International Training’s Graduate Institute.
  • Applicants will be considered for additional merit-based awards depending on the strength of their application.
  • Application fee waiver
  • Enrollment Deferral: A one-year deferral is available for accepted students who decide to serve additional time with City Year before starting their studies.

Scholarships are awarded to City Year corps members and alumni who have completed at least one year of service, and to City Year staff members who have been employed for at least two years. In order to be considered for the scholarship, individuals must be admitted to one of SIT’s master’s degree programs.​
