About the Opportunity Funds Program (OFP)
OFP’s assignment is to aid talented and ascertained, low-income students that are good applicants for financial assistance from U.S. schools and colleges, however, they lack the funding to pay for their Admission and entry fees.
OFP works closely together with students during regularly scheduled seminars and meetings to aid them through the duration of the application process to procure scholarships and admissions to attend schools and colleges in the USA.
EducationUSA Scholarship takes care of the total cost of these Procedures, including enrollment prices for required standardized assessments and supplies free membership into the U.S. EducationUSA Advising Center because of the Student participants.
