MPOWER / InternationalStudent.com Scholarship Program for Central American International Students

December 2nd, 2019 by Al C

Education is vital in cultivating a productive global society.

This reality holds true throughout the world. But sadly, not all are given the chance – especially students from developing countries who have huge potential but lack the financial means to experience top-class education.

Fortunately, InternationalStudent.com has partnered with MPOWER in bringing Central American students closer to their dream of pursuing higher education in the United States with the help of the MPOWER/InternationStudent.com Central America Scholarship Program.

More about the scholarship

The Central American Scholarship Program worth $3,000 which serves as the grand prize will be awarded to one lucky scholar from Central America. There will also be two additional scholarships worth $1,000 that will be given away to two lucky scholars.

Students can apply before the application deadline on Jan. 31 at exactly 11:59 PM Eastern Time. The winners will then be announced on Mar. 31.

The eligibility of the winner will then be verified and the funds will then be directly disbursed to the college or university of the winners.

Who is eligible for the scholarship?

Students who are citizens of any country belonging to Central America are eligible. They should also be enrolled and or accepted to study full-time at any university or college that is supported by MPOWER in either the U.S. or Canada.

The student should also be legally allowed to study in the U.S. or Canada via green card, DACA program, study visa, or permanent citizenship.

How will the winners be selected?

Essay

The student’s written essay’s quality has a huge factor in the selection process. The essay should demonstrate that the applicant has clear thought, has compelling and attainable visions and goals, and has excellent writing skills along with good grammar.

Willingness to Help the Community

The applicant should have a proven track record and willingness in taking part in activities that help improve the quality of living of marginalized communities in the U.S. or in their home country.

Intent to study in the US or Canada

The student should have a reasonable and justifiable reason on why they intend to study in the U.S. or Canada. Their goals and aspirations should uphold the common good of not only themselves, but of the community as a whole. The applicant should demonstrate willingness to become a productive part of the U.S., Canadian or Central American community as a whole, with the help of the education acquired.

Leadership Potential

The application should show strong signs of having the potential of becoming a leader and advocate for global peace, unity, and productivity in the U.S. and that of their home country. He or she must serve as a positive example to others.

Final Thoughts

Bringing education to underprivileged students from Central American countries who have the potential to create a positive impact to society is what the scholarship is about.

Hopefully, the InternationStudent.com/MPOWER Central America Scholarship Program winners will help improve, in one way or another, the living standards of their home communities and that of the North and Central American society as a whole with the help of their education.
