Harvard was just the beginning
This month, we’re excited to be listed as a lender at Babson, Hult University, and Northeastern’s Level Bootcamp! Our focus on helping highly-employable students left out of traditional financing is unique in the marketplace and is resonating with an increasing number of educational institutions. We look forward to supporting high-potential students enrolled at traditional and emerging education programs around the country!
MPOWER borrower Nikola
Meet Nikola! He’s one of the many borrowers we’ve been able to help this summer with your support. Nikola is receiving his Masters in Economic Development at Harvard University. Here is a small message Nikola shared with MPOWER.
“Finding funds for [the Harvard Kennedy School] is very challenging coming from Serbia. MPOWER was quick and accessible. I would recommend MPOWER, especially to international students.”

After making nearly every possible mistake in financing his own education, Kevin built his career in student lending around the goal of creating better options for other students. He brings to MPOWER over 15 years of experience at Student Loan Xpress and Medfunds, where he created loan programs for schools throughout the USA, Ireland, Australia, and the UK. Kevin lives in Cleveland with his wife and four children.

Fighting regulation with innovation
Thanks to the support of 1776, we were featured in Dell’s blog on real impact through entrepreneurship! Dell put a video together including an interview with MPOWER CEO and Co-founder, Manu Smadja. Check out the blog and video here.
A better loan for indian students
This past summer MPOWER was able to help a significant number of high achieving Indian students attend Masters programs at top U.S. institutions on the East Coast. Our General Manager in India, Aman Jain, has done phenomenal work building awareness for MPOWER across the country. As a result, we’ve received news coverage in the Raj Express, Dabang Dunia, and Dainik Bhaskar, among other Indian newspapers. Read more about it in our blog.
