Program Highlights

Opportunity Funds for Nicaraguan students

Since 2007, Opportunity has given financial support to cover the costs of applying to colleges and universities in the US to 29 Nicaraguan students. There are currently 9 active students in the program, 4 of whom are currently enrolled in undergraduate programs, and 1 in a graduate program in the US.

Community College Fair

Noting a viable market for technical/vocational and 2+2 programs for students in Central America, the EducationUSA Centers in Guatemala, Nicaragua, and El Salvador hosted the first Community College Fair in Central America. With funding support from the Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, nine community colleges from all over the U.S. participated in a week of fairs, counselor workshops, meetings with parents and rectors of local universities. In Nicaragua, the fair took place in Managua, the capital city, and was attended by more than 300 students and parents. Press coverage of the fair was outstanding and several community college representatives gave interviews for print media, on the radio and TV.

Informative Panel of US Ex-Alumni

To highlight International Education Week, we held the first Informative Panel where US ex-alumni presented their experiences on studying in US institutions through the different programs offered by the US embassy and scholarship opportunities. It was a great opportunity for future applying students to inform themselves from at-hand experience about studying in US institutions.
