Scholarships for international students

MPOWER’s mission is to support international students and their career aspirations. Our scholarships are just one of the many ways we fulfill our mission.

We know that many scholarships come with restrictions and entry fees that limit accessibility. MPOWER, therefore, created scholarships that are widely accessible to international students.

For more scholarship opportunities, visit our friends at Unigo.

Our signature scholarship program, the MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship, awards up to $5,000 to international students at schools we support. We just announced the winners for our Spring competition, and we are hard at work selecting the winners for the round that closed on July 15th. The due date for our next round is November 15, 2019.

We recently announced the winners of our brand-new MPOWER Women in STEM Scholarship Program. This was such a success that we immediately launched another round, and we are busy selecting the winners for this second competition. The due date for the third round is November 15, 2019.  Please click here to apply!

We also announced the winners of our MPOWER Nursing Scholarship Program.

Finally, we have just concluded two exciting new scholarship competitions in partnership with La Unidad Latina Foundation (LULF). One was for students from Latin America, and the other was for DACA students. We are busy reviewing these applications and will announce the winners shortly.
