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
NeXXt Scholars Initiative
Description: The NeXXt Scholars Initiative seeks to engage and advance more young women from around the world in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by preparing them to be the next generation of leaders in science, engineering, and innovation. This partnership with 37 U.S. women's colleges expands opportunities for young women from Muslim-majority countries to obtain a world-class undergraduate STEM education in the United States in an empowering and comfortable environment alongside American women students. The NeXXt Scholars Initiative provides partnership, mentorship, and networking support for these International NeXXt Scholars and their college-nominated American STEM-Sisters, laying a solid STEM foundation and providing pathways to future research collaborations and economic empowerment.
