Loans help students do summer study abroad Europe

You can't afford to miss The Catalyst. Our intensive and high-impact learning is unlike anything you've ever done. Joining The Catalyst community is always special. Your classes will meet most days from about 9:30 until 2:30. We routinely cover 4-6 miles on foot each session. Because we use our locations to make our subject matter come alive. To make our access to our locations easy, we alway stay right in the heart of our program cities. Your museum and other entry fees are covered for your class sessions.

The cost of our programs is manageable on almost any student budget, because students can almost always find financial aid to help fund their experience.

How I Funded The Catalyst

Confident Woman



There were so many scholarships to apply for.  I got three total, and they helped me a ton to get on The Catalyst.
