MPOWER is creating globally-minded, multi-lingual, culturally-competent graduates poised to take on the world’s most pressing problems in science, technology, business, and public policy through Global Citizen Scholarships. The MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarships identifies the extraordinary talents of the students and aids their dream of higher education in the USA and Canada. Furthermore, this scholarship intentionally designed this scholarship program to be as broad as possible to match the broad, diverse experiences of international students. And there’s no requirement to be an MPOWER borrower to apply.

  • Similarly, for study in Canada, this means the applicant is either a Canadian permanent resident or has a valid Canadian study permit.
  • Furthermore, this scholarship is not available for US or Canadian citizens who wish to study in their own country of citizenship.
