COVID-19 Resources

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well during this unprecedented health crisis. Aspiring students are revisiting their options abroad, and we know evaluating these global dreams can be more complicated than ever.

That’s why eduPASS has partnered with MPOWER Financing to provide resources for potential students exploring their options. We encourage you to take a look at our curated list below, share with anyone that could benefit, and stay tuned for better times ahead!

Where can I find additional help for the U.S. Visa Process?

Our friends at MPOWER hosted a webinar with a special guest, a multicountry Ex-Vice Consul of the U.S. Embassy, to talk about how the current health crisis will possibly change the visa process for incoming international students. You can check out the recording here.

Can I still apply to scholarships?

Yes! Many people think that it’s impossible to get a scholarship as an international student, but luckily that’s not true. There are plenty of opportunities and we’ll help you stand out!

Will Fall classes start on campus?

What’s going to happen at U.S. colleges this fall? We don’t have a crystal ball, but a mix of these 15 scenarios is our educated guess.

Can eduPASS help me find housing?

We’ve partnered with 4Stay, an off-campus housing platform to help you explore short-term housing options. Please visit their website if this could be helpful.
