Education USA Sholars Program 2024

EducationUSA Scholars Program (ESP) facilitates access to U.S. higher education for academically talented international students. ESP students must participate in an organized cohort advising program for which the Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Embassy Addis Ababa seeks to identify 20 Ethiopian students to join the 2024 ESP program.

The objective is to assist those high-achieving Ethiopian students in the admissions process to U.S. colleges and universities for better academic futures, with the goal of producing highly-skilled and widely-educated leaders to build tomorrow’s Ethiopia. 

The program works with students through regularly scheduled training sessions to assist them throughout the application process to study in the U.S. and apply for financial aid.

In addition, the program includes academic counseling, standardized tests (TOEFL, SAT), and college application essay writing assistance. Students will be selected based on academic records, essays, and an interview.

Among the total 20 finalist candidates, 15 highly qualified, economically disadvantaged students will be selected to benefit from the Opportunity Program Fund (OPF) program that covers costs related to standardized tests, U.S. visa fees, and the first few successful candidates will also get a round trip ticket to the U.S. 

The remaining 5 students will participate in the training program free of charge, but they are expected to cover the preparation expenses from their own sources. Mobile data costs will be covered for both program participants.
