We are pleased to offer a variety of scholarships to help families meet the financial obligations of our summer youth Language Village programs. From our general Passport Fund to language-specific scholarships funded by our partners and awards from the Minnesota Office of Higher Education, we provide thousands of dollars every year to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to experience Concordia Language Villages.

UPDATE: As of March 1, 2024, General Passport Fund scholarships have been exhausted. Select language-specific scholarships are still available for Chinese, Danish, Finnish, German (High School Credit only), Norwegian and Swedish.

Passport Fund

Scholarships are available for Concordia Language Villages’ summer youth programs through our Passport Fund. The Passport Fund allows villagers to apply for funding from multiple sources with one application.
