University of the People is based on the belief that education at a minimal cost is a basic right for all individuals, not just for a privileged few. The University opens the gates of higher education to qualified students anywhere in the world by offering its programs through distance learning and by making this opportunity affordable. If you are accepted to study at UoPeople, but you cannot find any suitable designated scholarships, and you are unable to raise funds through the Micro-Scholarship portal, you may apply for a University Scholarship. This fund was specifically created to help students that are still in financial need because, for one reason or another, they were unable to successfully utilize the other funds or financial tools we have available.
Funds for University Scholarships are provided by donations to UoPeople’s General Scholarship Fund.
