United States Student Achievers Program
2014 Application Form

There are many determined and talented students in Mongolia who lack financial resources and access to information to better their educational future. For the 8th year, the Educational Advising and Resource Center seeks to identify highly academically qualified and motivated, but financially disadvantaged 10th and 11th grade students to join the United States Student Achievers Program (USAP).

USAP’s mission is to assist highly-talented and determined, but economically-disadvantaged ADVANCED LEVEL students to negotiate and finance the admissions process for colleges and universities in the United States with the aim of producing skilled and widely-educated leaders for tomorrow’s Mongolia. USAP works closely with students through regularly scheduled meetings and seminars in order to assist them throughout the application process and to secure admission and scholarships for colleges and universities in the United States. The EducationUSA advising center – EARC - provides free membership to its resources and advising sessions for the USAP participants. USAP expects a strong commitment from the students to the program and later on to their communities and Mongolian society.

Although we do not limit the program geographically, the students MUST be able to reach our office in Ulaanbaatar on a regular basis during the school year, throughout school breaks and summer vacations. The students will work with our educational advising staff over this year and the next year to try to secure places and financial assistance to begin study in the US in August or September 2014.

ENTRANCE INTO THIS PROGRAM IS NO GUARANTEE OF A SCHOLARSHIP OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDY IN THE UNITED STATES.

To apply to USAP, you must currently be a highly-determined and hardworking 10th and 11th grade student who will graduate in spring of 2013 and 2014. To be eligible for consideration, you must have a VERY strong academic record, be actively involved in co-curricular and leadership activities and have a strong record of giving back to community. You must also demonstrate financial need and provide a proof that your family would not be capable of financing your education in the USA.
