FSYF Academic Merit Scholarship

Since 2010, FSYF has been recognizing Foreign Service High school Seniors and Gap-Year dependents for their outstanding achievements through the FSYF Scholarship. Growing up in the Foreign Service may be exciting but it isn't always easy. FS children face many challenges and disruptions to their lives. Overcoming those challenges and achieving academic success is admirable. FSYF celebrates the academic achievements of its youth members and supports their future academic goals.

High school seniors and gap year dependents whose families are members of the Foreign Service Youth Foundation (FSYF) are eligible to apply. (Verify FSYF member eligibility and join FSYF here.) 

The Award

FSYF is offering three Scholarships of $2,000 per award.   


High School seniors and gap-year dependents of Foreign Service employees are invited to apply.  Please note that FSYF membership is required by the time of application.  

The children of FSYF Board Members and Advisory Council are not eligible to apply for this scholarship.

Deadline: Applications will be due on March 2, 2022.


Judging panels are composed of members of the FSYF Board of Directors and volunteers from the Foreign Service Community. Details on the judging process can be found here.


Applicants will be notified by email of the results by May 23, 2022. Scholarships will be bestowed in June 2022 at the FSYF Youth Awards Ceremony at the US Department of State.
