Applications are open for the MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship 2022. The scholarships are awarded annually to international and DACA students enrolled in MPOWER supported universities. They have intentionally designed this scholarship program to be as broad as possible to match the broad and diverse experiences of international students.

At MPOWER, they believe they do more than expand access to higher education. They also create globally minded, multilingual and culturally competent graduates ready to tackle the world’s most pressing issues in science, technology, business and public policy. In recognition of the extraordinary potential of these students, they have created the MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship.
