Several organizations have teamed up with UoPeople to create funds and help students pay for their Exam Processing Fees. Each fund is catered to a specific demographic and is open for the relevant population to apply. UoPeople works very hard to raise as many of these funds as possible in order to remain aligned with our mission of opening access to higher education and serving as many individuals in need as we can. In order to apply for a UoPeople scholarship, students must first complete their application and be admitted to UoPeople.
