If you're an international student, you've probably discovered first hand just how hard finding a scholarship can be. International tuition is often twice as high as domestic fees, meaning you have major bills to pay — and comparably fewer scholarship options to help you.
That's where MPOWER Financing steps in, with its annual Global Citizen Scholarships. Built specifically for international students, this award is open to students studying abroad in the US or Canada — and though MPOWER offers loan support to international students, you don't need to be an MPOWER borrower to apply.
MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship details
The Global Citizen Scholarship has three prize levels:
- Grand Prize: $10,000
- Runner-Up: $2,000
- Honourable Mention: $2,000
That means you have three chances to win some cash for school. But don't wait to apply: the deadline is January 15, 2023.

That's it! You don't need to be an MPOWER borrower to apply.
Remember, this scholarship is specifically for international and DACA students, meaning Canadians studying in Canada, and U.S. citizens studying in the U.S. are not eligible for this award.
