Flywire Charitable Foundation

The Flywire Charitable Foundation is committed to improving access to quality education and healthcare. By doing so, we strive to create a more inclusive, just and equitable society, where every individual can explore new cultures and experiences across borders, regardless of one’s background.

Our Vision

A future where individuals and communities all over the world have equal access to the resources needed to improve their outcomes, regardless of one’s race, gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation.

This starts with closing the affordability gap for individuals seeking to access high quality healthcare, education and other life experiences, no matter where they are in the world.

Our Pillars

Our mission and vision stand on three pillars:


Creating an inclusive and just society hinges on the notion that we’re all equals, regardless of our race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. We commit to supporting initiatives that reduce racial and other societal disparities.


Action starts with access and we commit to ensuring minority populations have access to the same educational, healthcare and cultural opportunities that majority populations do.


Across the world, the cost of education and healthcare exceed individuals’ ability to pay. We commit to finding solutions that reduce this affordability gap.

Our Scholarships

The Flywire Charitable Foundation scholarships were awarded to students in need to help them better manage costs associated with their education. In 2021 we awarded students who had academic pursuits in the following disciplines:

Social justice

As social justice issues such as policing, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, religious persecution, sexism, racism and sexual violence, have continued to dominate the world news this year, the need for significant social justice reform has only increased. These scholarships aim to support tomorrow’s leaders who will work towards eradicating racism, violence, systemic biases and other acts of intolerance.

Global health

As individuals and communities around the world continue to overcome the challenges of a global pandemic, it’s clear that there is a strong need for innovative approaches to improve global health. These scholarships will be awarded to students who are committed to enhancing health outcomes and quality of life for individuals all over the world.

Global citizenship

From climate change and sustainability, to income inequality, this year has uncovered the importance of elevating humanity when addressing challenges across social, political, environmental and economic issues. Scholarships in this category will be awarded to students who embody their own definition of being a global citizen with the purpose of making a positive impact on their community and the world.

The 2021 scholarship process has ended.
