Harare, Zimbabwe: The United States Student Achievers Program (USAP) program is inviting applications from academically gifted but economically disadvantaged Zimbabwean students for the 2010- 11 program.

Selected students undergo an intensive yearlong program that assists them to negotiate and finance the process of obtaining full scholarships to study at U.S. colleges and universities. In addition to being straight A students, USAP participants must also exhibit demonstrated leadership potential and the ethos of giving back to their community.

Application forms are available at http://harare.usembassy.gov or through e-mail on hararepas@state.gov. Students in Harare can visit the Embassy’s offices in Eastgate. Prospective students located outside of Harare can visit the advising center at the Bulawayo Public Library or satellite advising centers at Gweru Memorial Library, Turner Memorial Library, and Africa University Library in Mutare and Mucheke Public Library in Masvingo.

Since the establishment of USAP in 1999 in Harare, over 200 Zimbabwean students have enrolled with full scholarships covering tuition and fees, room and board, books and other expenses for four year bachelor degree studies. An initiative of the U.S. Embassy in Harare, USAP has been replicated in 14 countries on four continents and has assisted over 200 students.

For more information on USAP, we encourage you to visit www.usapglobal.org

The U. S. Embassy's Public Affairs Section in Eastgate houses an EducationUSA certified educational advising center that provides comprehensive, accurate, current, and unbiased information about higher education opportunities in the United States.
