2018 Summer Program Scholarships

By LaunchX Team

July 24, 2018

At LaunchX our main goal is to inspire young entrepreneurs across the globe, regardless of their financial status. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore their passion, which is why we offer a variety of scholarships to qualifying applicants.

Check out the scholarship stats for summer 2018: 

  • 122 application fees waived
  • More than 25% of admitted students received financial need scholarships 
  • With an average of >$5,000 awarded towards program fees


It’s important to stress that the admissions process of LaunchX is blind. Indicating on your application that you require financial assistance will in no way impact your acceptance outcome.  It will only make it easier for the LaunchX team to provide you the proper information upon admission.  You are not asked to submit a full financial-need application until after you are accepted. Financial assistance packages are provided on a case-by-case basis and vary depending on the student’s individual situations. Assistance is offered to both international and domestic students. 

How do applicants get the application fee waived? 

Fee waivers are available for students who provide evidence of need.  For many students in this category, providing evidence of being on a free or reduced lunch program at your school is sufficient.  If your school does not have such a program, any submission that shows your family financial status in a similar manner will work. 

How much scholarship can our family expect to receive? 

We compiled the financial scholarship offers of our 2018 financial need applicants to provide average figures.

PLEASE NOTE: While the below provides some average amounts based on family incomes, this is for informational purposes only. This is not an indication or promise of the amount that your family may receive.  Each package is determined individually, where actual amounts vary based on the specifics of a family financial situations, factoring many more criteria than just income- such as family size, core costs, geography, and much more.

 

Income Average Scholarship Remaining Fee
0 - 25k $5,879 $431
25 - 50k $4,523 $1,938
50 - 75k $2,383 $4,012
75k + $0 $6,295

 

We hope that you keep this in mind when considering the LaunchX summer and we look forward to receiving your application in 2019!
