The Scholarships are awarded annually to international and DACA students enrolled at Universities MPOWER supports. They have intentionally designed this scholarship programme to be as broad as possible to match the broad, diverse experiences of international students.

At MPOWER, they believe that they are not just expanding access to higher education. They are also 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. In recognition of the extraordinary potential of these students, they have created the MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship.
