High school students can apply for US scheme
US Consulate General Hamilton is pleased to announce that eleven US colleges and universities will host EducationUSA Academy participants across the United States in summer 2020.
The EducationUSA Academy, a pre-college academic enrichment programme for international high school students, is an additional effort by the United States to recruit the world’s best and brightest students to pursue a future degree in the United States. Through two-to-four-week programs, the EducationUSA Academy prepares 15- to 17-year old students from around the world to submit strong applications to US universities through college preparatory content, academic English courses, campus visits, and cultural enrichment opportunities. The Academy creates a new pathway for international high school students who may not otherwise have considered attending university in the United States by providing them with the information and skills necessary to become successful students at US higher education institutions.
The following US college and university campuses will host EducationUSA Academy sessions in 2020: Diablo Valley College (California), Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Florida), Northwestern University (Illinois), Syracuse University (New York), Temple University (Pennsylvania), University of Colorado Boulder (Colorado), Boston University (Massachusetts), St. Cloud State University (Minnesota), St. John’s University (New York), University of Tennessee-Knoxville (Tennessee), University of Wisconsin-Madison (Wisconsin). Potential applicants can apply directly to the institution of their choice. Please refer to each institution’s website for more information about the programme, applicable fees, and application procedures and deadlines, which can be found on the EducationUSA Academy website: http://www.edusaacademy.org
International education prepares students for today’s globalised economy, and develops the relationships between people and communities in the United States and around the world that are necessary to solve global challenges. The US Department of State’s EducationUSA advising network includes more than 430 advising centres in over 175 countries and territories around the world that provide prospective international students with accurate, current, and comprehensive information about US higher education.

EducationUSA is working in partnership with the Institute of International Education (IIE) to administer this important programme.
