Special Programs

Competitive College Club
Description: EducationUSA Competitive College Clubs (CCC) help the best and brightest students apply to competitive U.S. colleges and universities. CCC advisers work intensively to prepare students for the application process. CCC advisers organize student activities including study groups, intensive SAT and ACT preparation, reading assignments, lectures, and community service projects. Students sign a contract detailing their responsibilities, which include attending all meetings during the school year and summer sessions.
Deadline: Ongoing
Eligibility Requirements: CCCs are open to students in grades 8-11 who are in the top 10% of their class.
Opportunity Funds
Description: Opportunity funds, available through EducationUSA advising centers in many countries, support exceptionally well-qualified students of limited financial means with the up-front costs of applying to undergraduate or graduate degree programs at accredited U.S. colleges and universities. Opportunity funds may be used to pay the costs of test preparation and fees, visa and application fees, transportation costs, books, and settling-in allowances.
Deadline: Ongoing
Eligibility Requirements: Opportunity students are selected based on financial need and strong academic backgrounds that give them the potential to receive full or partial tuition support at a U.S. institution of higher learning
