EducationUSA Opportunity students are just the ticket! Initiated by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in 2007, Opportunity funding supports talented international students with the application process to U.S. higher education institutions. Opportunity covers the initial application expenses for highly competitive international students who do not have the financial means to apply to universities in the United States.
This year, EducationUSA Opportunity funding in Eurasia is supporting 60 exceptional applicants from Belarus, Russia and Ukraine who are very competitive for and in need of full funding. Would you like to meet them?
In an effort to promote these great applicants to more U.S. institutions, EducationUSA Advisers compiled short profiles of their Opportunity students who expressed interest in participating in this new initiative. You can view the profiles online, and contact the students’ EducationUSA advisers if you would like more information. http://bit.ly/1h4SCNX
Since 2007, EducationUSA’s Opportunity funding in Eurasia has assisted over 500 students from Belarus, Russia and Ukraine to apply to study in the United States. The results are impressive – 278 Opportunity students received 387 offers of admission and $11.8 million of first-year funding. Opportunity students bring cultural and economic diversity to U.S. college campuses, they are among the most academically talented candidates from their countries, and they are extremely well prepared for higher education in the U.S.
