English Access Microscholarship Program

English Access Microscholarship Program
The English Access Microscholarship Program (Access) provides a foundation of English language skills to talented 14–18 year-olds from disadvantaged sectors through after-school classes and intensive summer sessions. Access students gain an appreciation for American culture and democratic values, increase their ability to participate successfully in the socio-economic development of their countries, and gain the ability to compete for and participate in future U.S. exchange and study programs. Since its inception in 2004, approximately 70,000 students in more than 85 countries have participated in the Access Program.
It also:
- enables bright non-elite youth from underserved communities to gain proficiency in the English language and develop other communication skills.
- promotes better understanding of U.S. culture and society.
- encourages appreciation of civic values through community service activities.
- helps students better prepare for educational and career opportunities that enable them to contribute to their societies’ development.
