The President of the United States, Donald Trump, yesterday approved the US Embassy Scholarship for International students, knowing the fact that there are many determined and talented, low-income students around the world, who only require financial resources and access to information to better their educational future. For some years now, the United States Embassy, US seeks to identify academically qualified and highly motivated, low-income students around the world to join the Education in USA.

The United States Embassy is encouraging young leaders to apply for the 2018 US Embassy Scholarship, which opened from October 3 to November 10, 2017.

A statement issued by the Public Affairs Unit of the U.S Embassy on Thursday, said the application for the Scholarship would close at exactly on Friday, November 10, 2017.

The US Embassy will work closely through their representatives with students regularly scheduled meetings and seminars to assist them throughout the application process to secure admission and scholarships to attend colleges and universities in the United States. The cost for application process is sponsored, including registration fees for required standardized examinations and provides free membership to the U.S. Education.
