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. Check out our amazing winners for Spring 2019, and Summer 2019! We are currently hard at work selecting the winners for the round that closed on November 15, 2019. The due date for our next round is April 15, 2020. Please click here to apply!

Our other recurring scholarship program is for Women in STEM. If you’re looking for some inspiration, we encourage you to read about our winners for Spring 2019 and Summer 2019.  We are currently hard at work selecting the winners for the round that closed on November 15, 2019.

We’re constantly adding additional scholarship competitions, often with partners. For example, in the past year, we’ve announced winners for an MPOWER Nursing Scholarship Program, an MPOWER Arts Scholarship Program, and joint scholarship programs for Latin American and DACA students with La Unidad Latina Foundation. We’ve also just launched a scholarship for students from Central America in partnership with InternationalStudent.com!
