U.S. Government Sponsored Community College Initiatives (Scholarship Program)
The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State is pleased to announce the Community College Initiatives Program.

To apply to the program, candidates must:

•have English language skills that provide a basis for enrolling in academic coursework following approximately 2 months of intensive English language study in the U.S.; and

U.S. Program:
The Community College Initiatives will provide funding for round-trip airfare to the U.S.; a living allowance during English language, academic, and practical training program components; tuition costs; a health benefit plan; and cultural enhancement activities. Students will be hosted in groups by community colleges competitively selected to participate in the program. Programs are approximately one year in duration. Successful participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the year. Students are required to return home at the end of their program and may not transfer to a four-year U.S. academic institution.
