Improve their lives & futures with a scholarship

A microproject by University of the People

UNESCO has stated that by 2025, about 95 Million students will not have place in the existing universities. And for those students who do have a spot, many of them are unable to access higher education due to financial constraints. University of the People has created an innovative, online, tuition-free model to ensure that no qualified individual is denied access to higher education for financial reasons. 

This project aims to raise funds to help support UoPeople's efforts and mission to democratize higher education. 

University of the People continues to provide access to higher education for students around the world, working hard to promote lower education costs and helping to democratize higher education worldwide. To date, over 1700 students from 143 countries have been accepted.

University of the People is continually expanding our worldwide partnerships in order to open the gates of higher education to as many students worldwide as possible. Corporate partners, organizations, and generous individuals make our mission to democratize education a reality.

University of the People is dedicated to our mission to ensure that no qualified individual will be denied access to higher education due to financial, social or geographic constraints. Your donation is an integral part of making sure this is possible!

The next Einstein may be waiting inside a student who does not currently have access to education - and UoPeople is working hard to change this! Your donation to provide a scholarship for students to study at UoPeople ensures that no matter who the next Einstein may be, they will have access to education.

Education is a right for everyone and together, we can make sure this is a reality for all!
