This project supports the U.S. Mission to South Africa’s 2020/2021 EducationUSA Opportunity Funds Program, which assists highly qualified students who wish to pursue an undergraduate or postgraduate degree program at an accredited post-secondary institution in the United States, and who are likely to be awarded full financial aid from such U.S. colleges and universities, but lack the financial resources to cover the up-front costs. U.S. Government-sponsored Opportunity Funds provide qualified students with financial support for the costs of required standardized admission tests, university or college application fees, international and domestic airfare, visa fees, SEVIS fees, and settling-in allowances.
