International students face a world of challenges when pursuing higher education in the U.S., including language barriers, financial stress, complicated documentation, and a lack of community.

Empowering international students to stick with their dreams and helping them through the process requires sharing resources, knowledge, and networks that can make their transition easier so they can focus on academic excellence and professional development.

This scholarship seeks to provide financial assistance and other support to international students as they pursue their academic goals.

Any high school or undergraduate student who is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) major and an international student may apply for this scholarship opportunity, but applicants from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda are preferred.
