Selected Scholars will receive support in navigating the admissions process for U.S. colleges and universities As part of U.S. efforts to support the development of highly-skilled and well-educated leaders to build Ethiopia’s future. 12 slots will be reserved for high-achieving economically disadvantaged students, who will receive additional financial support as part to the Opportunity Fund Program.

ESP works with students through regularly scheduled training sessions to assist them throughout the application process to study in the U.S. and, apply for financial aid when needed. The intensive four-week program will be held in July 2019, and includes preparation for required standardized tests. It also includes academic counseling and coaching for essay writing.
