The applications for the 2017 USAP Program are out! We are looking for determined, bright, low-income students who have just started their U6 final year of high school and will be writing A levels in 2017. This new cohort of USAP students will begin the program during their April holidays, and work with the Education Matters team on their application process throughout 2017 to begin university studies in August 2018.
USAP students are academically-talented students from economically-disadvantaged backgrounds who exhibit clear leadership potential and a strong ethos of giving. We are looking for 40 students for the new cohort from all over the country and are excited by the stories they will tell and the dreams they will pursue. All finalists will be interviewed at locations around Zimbabwe.
Applications, which include O level results, school reports, essays and a letter of recommendation, are downloadable online from this link or paper applications can be picked up at the Education Matters office at 23 Connaught Road in Avondale, EducationUSA on the 7th floor of the Gold Bridge of Eastgate in Harare, the American Space at 55 Jason Moyo Ave in Bulawayo, Turner Memorial Library in Mutare or the Gweru Memorial Library.
The application deadline is Monday, 27 February. You will never know if you could be the next USAPer if you don’t apply. Get hold of your application and apply for USAP today!
