CHDS grants full scholarships to individuals selected to attend resident courses in Washington, DC. Scholarships include roundtrip airfare, lodging for the duration of the course, and all meals (a combination of contracted meals and per diem). There is no course cost (tuition).
Scholarship recipients are responsible for obtaining a valid visa to enter the United States. The CHDS Registrar office and the United States Military Liaison Office in your country will assist participants with this process. Costs to procure a visa to attend a CHDS course are reimbursed (with receipts). CHDS cannot reimburse visa costs for candidates who are not selected to attend.
Fees to obtain a passport are not reimbursable.
US citizens cannot (by law) receive scholarships, but may apply to attend when self-funded. US citizens and other self-funded candidates should contact the Registrar’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional guidance.
NOTE: Citizens of the United States, Canada and other countries designated as "High Income" by the World Bank are not eligible for scholarships. Citizens of these counties may apply to courses, but in a self-funded status. Self-funded candidates must meet all eligibility standards and comply with all application requirements, including application deadlines. The deadline for United States citizens is the same for other candidates, but we will accept late applications up to four weeks before a course begins (this does not guarantee participation). Candidates with dual citizenship (USA and another country) seeking a scholarship must comply with all application requirements for non-US citizens, and are handled on a case-by-case basis.
