Twenty nine USAP Zimbabwe students chosen from an applicant pool of over 700 have collectively earned over $7,728,212 in scholarships and financial assistance to study in seven countries internationally this month. Harkening from geographically diverse regions of Zimbabwe, the 29 are pursuing a wide variety of fields of studies at universities in Costa Rica, Ghana, India, Korea, Scotland, South Africa and the United States.
We are confident that this third USAP cohort under Education Matters to start university studies is prepared to hit the ground running, having pursued internships and entrepreneurial ventures, community service projects, and pre-college courses offered by Education Matters during the eight months since they completed their A level studies. They have also benefited from the new Education Matters library where they have read a wide variety of quality fiction and non-fiction. Eight USAP students also traveled in April to the Republic of Somaliland for a weeklong intercultural and educational exchange program with the Abaarso School of Science and Technology .
