About

The value of community can’t be understated ‒ particularly for students working hard to achieve their educational goals and find their place in the world. For that reason, MyUS is excited to announce the MyUS.com Community Scholarship, a global annual scholarship that will provide select eligible students with financial assistance as they earn their degrees.
