Call for application of the MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship is open now!!!
At MPOWER, they believe that they are not just expanding access to higher education. They are also creating globally-minded, multi-lingual, culturally competent graduates poised to take on the world’s most pressing problems in science, technology, business, and public policy.
Looking for fully-funded opportunities, install the Youth Opportunities Android or iOS App here.
In recognition of the extraordinary potential of these students, the MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship is created. This scholarship programme is intentionally designed to be as broad as possible to match the broad, diverse experiences of international students. There’s no requirement to be an MPOWER borrower to apply.
Winners will be selected based solely on their essay submissions. MPOWER will select winners based on:
- The quality of the applicant’s essay; the essay should demonstrate clarity of thought, compelling goals and vision, and superior communication skills in English;
- The extent to which there is a clear nexus between the applicant’s intended field of study and his/her goals and aspirations; and
- The applicant’s potential as a scientist, entrepreneur, leader, and/or change-maker who will make a positive impact.
Three (3) Scholarship winners will be selected.
The first-place winner will be awarded a $5,000 MPOWER Scholarship to be applied to tuition, fees, or expenses at the winner’s school of attendance (each a “Prize”).
Two additional winners will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Students (the “Entrants”) may enter the Scholarship once.
