Lower Fees for Developing Nations
“God has renewed in us a call to be both international and multicultural,” said Associate Provost David Hamilton.  “The rising cost of our schools over the years has made them less accessible to international students.  To change that, we have overhauled our budgets to be able to significantly reduce tuition cost for those from developing nations.”  International students already pay a higher price to get here because of travel costs.  They also pay more than Americans in both time and money to comply with all the legal and visa requirements.

Countries listing by Per Capita Income
What does this change mean practically?  The University of the Nations International, using information
supplied by the United Nations and other sources, ranks countries in three categories (A,B,C) based on their per capita income.

Under U of N Kona’s fee schedule, students from B category nations will pay $1,000 less for their school fees than students from A category nations.  Students from C category nations (per capita income of $5,000 or less) will pay $2,000 less than those from A category nations.  You can see the full list below or you can download the list. For more information about additional scholarships see our Financial Assistance FAQ.

This is truly a blessing from the Lord to have students from all over the world join us at YWAM Kona in seeing revival happen in all the nations.
