Applications for US Embassy College Prep Program now being accepted

US Embassy College Prep Program

The US Embassy College Prep Program is offering extensive advising and resources for prospective students, including an in-person summer application boot camp, Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and American College Test (ACT) training, and guidance on selecting college programs and scholarships.

Filipino senior high school students with excellent grades, active participation in extracurricular activities, leadership potential, and a family income of less than P1.25 million per year are eligible to apply to the 18-month virtual program. Interested participants must submit their application on or before February 10, 2023 through the following link: https://educationusaph.org/CollegePrepProgram-Application.

The U.S. Embassy College Prep Program was launched in 2022 with a cohort of 11 students. To date, two out of the 11 students have received full scholarships to their top college choice while others have been accepted to American colleges under partial scholarships. Among them is scholar Carl Audric Guia, who recently received admission and a full tuition scholarship to his top-choice school, the University of Notre Dame.

“I started to take an interest in studying in the United States when I was in the 10th grade, but as a public high school student, I did not have a lot of opportunities to become familiar with the application process. The College Prep Program came at the right time—I met hands-on advisers who helped me choose best-fit colleges, prepare for standardized tests, edit essays, and much more,” Guia said.

EducationUSA is a U.S. Department of State network of over 430 international student advising centers in more than 175 countries and territories.

The network promotes U.S. higher education to students worldwide, offering accurate, comprehensive and current information about educational opportunities at accredited postsecondary institutions in the United States.
