EducationUSA Opportunity Funds Program (OFP) 2021 for South African high school graduate and Graduate to Study in the USA. Applicants are welcome from South Africa looking to pursue their Undergraduate, Masters or PhD level studies in the United States. The OFP scholarship is a fully-funded scholarship to study in the USA.
Many students in South Africa lack only financial resources and access to information to better their educational futures. The United States Mission to South Africa seeks to identify highly academically qualified and motivated, low-income, university students in South Africa to join the EducationUSA Opportunity Funds Program (OFP).
OFP’s mission is to assist highly-talented and determined, economically-disadvantaged students to negotiate and finance the admissions process for universities in the United States to produce highly-skilled and widely-educated leaders to build tomorrow’s South Africa.
OFP works closely with students through regularly scheduled webinars and individual sessions to assist them throughout the application process to secure admission and scholarships for universities in the United States. OFP finances all costs of the application process, including registration fees for required standardized examinations and provides free membership to the US Educational Advising Centers for its participants. OFP expects a sincere commitment of students to give back their energy and time to the program and their communities and to be the best they can be.
