Global Citizen Scholarship and Women in STEM Scholarship: Application Deadlines approaching!

June 12th, 2019 by Al C

We believe that everyone deserves the right to get a proper education as it creates a better world for all of us. What better way to turn that philosophy into reality by offering scholarships in the U.S. and Canada.

Knowing that these two countries are some of the best places to study and get a college degree because of their high educational standards, it’s best that deserving students get the chance to experience premium education.

This is why we, at International Education Financial Aid (IEFA), are proud to showcase two scholarships for international students in the U.S. and Canada. There are two scholarship types. These are the Global Citizen Scholarship and the Women in STEM Scholarship.

Although the deadlines have passed and the students have been carefully chosen, there’s still a chance that another round of free scholarships will be given soon.

Find out more about these scholarships and stay up to date with another possible round by reading on.

The Global Citizen Scholarship

Global Citizen Schoalrships for International students in the USA and Canada

Provided by: MPOWER

Application Deadline: July 15th

About this scholarship:

The Global Citizen Scholarship is geared towards international students who are looking to study either in the U.S.A. or in Canada. The two countries are considered as the top places to get premium education because of its first-world and high-standard educational experience.

To qualify you must be enrolled full-time at a US or Canadian school that MPOWER supports, and you must be an international student allowed to legally study in the U.S. or Canada. U.S. citizens wishing to study in the U.S. and Canadian citizens wishing to study in Canada are not eligible for this scholarship.

This scholarship is not restricted to a field of study – students from all fields can apply.

And although the application deadline has passed, the chances of MPOWER offering another batch of scholarships for international students is very high.

What is the Global Citizen Scholarship about?

This scholarship has been created and specifically designed to cater to international students who wanted to study in the U.S.A. and Canada. Its aim is to encourage a diverse community of students for the long-term goal of improving the productivity and prosperity of both the two countries and the individual lives of its scholars. In simpler terms, foreign students get the chance to experience American and Canadian college and university-level education at its finest.

What are the Global Citizen Scholarship requirements?

Scholarship applicants, should, however, be qualified. Some of the qualifications needed are full-time students who are currently enrolled at a school located in the U.S. or in Canada. And that school should be directly supported by MPOWER.

Furthermore, applicants should be confirmed as official international students who are allowed to legally study either in the U.S. or Canada or in both the two countries.

Students who are U.S. citizens looking forward to studying in the U.S. are exempted and not eligible for the scholarship. The same goes for Canadian citizens who are looking to study in Canada. The aforementioned scenarios are not eligible to get the scholarship.

However, it’s worth noting that the scholarship isn’t restricted to a specific field of study or degree. This means that successful scholars from any field of degree can apply for the scholarship.

About this scholarship:

The Women in STEM Scholarship is geared towards female international students who want to study college-level education in the U.S.A. or in Canada.

The last applications were also submitted last July 15. But the chances of having another batch of STEM scholars is very high because of MPOWER’s continuous support towards the cause.

What is the Women in STEM Scholarship about?

It is a scholarship fund aimed at women who are geared towards using their STEM degree for the greater good and benefit of society. Those who have the potential to serve as inspirational role models and as advocates for women’s rights are the main target of this scholarship.

What are the qualifications for the Women in STEM Scholarship?

Students coming from different countries, except for the U.S. and Canada, are eligible for the scholarship. They should also be currently enrolled in a STEM degree program in any U.S. or Canadian school that is directly supported by MPOWER. Only females and those who are full-time students can apply for this scholarship.

Applicants must also submit a clear and detailed essay describing their academic and professional accomplishments in the STEM program. They should also share their thoughts about their future goals and how they intend to achieve those goals if ever they successfully qualify for the STEM scholarship.
