United States Achievers Program (USAP) For Nigerian Students (Undergraduates)- 2015

It is my pleasure to call for applications for “The United States Achievers Program (USAP).” The USAP is for determined, talented and economically-disadvantaged Nigerian students who lack financial resources and access to information. For the 9th year, EducationUSA Advising Centers in Nigeria is rigorously seeking to identify academically qualified and motivated, low-income, secondary school leavers to join the United States Achievers Program (USAP). www.usapglobal.org

MISSION: USAP’s mission is to assist these highly-talented and economically-disadvantaged high school students to negotiate the admissions and financial aid process for colleges and universities in the United States. The ultimate goal is to produce widely-educated leaders to build tomorrow’s Nigeria.

BENEFITS: The Nigerian USAP students will be part of a global network of USAP students from 17 countries and four continents. Presently, Nigeria has several students studying at highly competitive institutions including Harvard, University of California, Berkeley, Brown & Tufts University etc. USAP program finances costs of the application process, including registration fees for required standardized examinations and provides free membership to the EducationUSA Advising Center. In turn, USAP expects students to give back their energy and time to the program and to their communities.

CRITERIA: To apply to USAP, you must be a highly-determined and hardworking student with WAEC results from 2014 or 2015. To be eligible for consideration, you must have a VERY strong academic record. This means that we need only students who have a minimum of 7A’s and absolutely no C’s. The student must also be actively involved in co-curricular and leadership activities and have a strong record of giving back to community. He/She must also demonstrate financial need that their family would not be capable of financing the U.S. application process on their own. USAP applicants are welcome from all the States in Nigeria, however, students must be able to reach our offices in Lagos or Abuja on a monthly basis during the admission process.

ENTRANCE INTO THIS PROGRAM IS NO GUARANTEE OF A SCHOLARSHIP OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDY IN THE UNITED STATES.
