Western Union 2021 Scholars Program for Undergraduate Low-Income International Students

The WU Scholars program was created to help give young people a boost toward a better life. The Western Union Foundation believes education is the surest path to economic opportunity. Educational pursuits to gain knowledge and skills for in-demand, 21st century careers are helping people all over the world climb the economic ladder.

As part of this year’s program the Foundation will be rolling out two different scholarship opportunities as part of the overall fund. The first, is an evolution of our evergreen WU Global Scholars initiative that targets international students from low-income countries studying in Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, the United States and the United Kingdom – some of the world’s leading destinations for international scholars. The second, is a renewal our Project Finish Line initiative, launched last year in partnership with Western Union’s Black Advisory Council, to support BIPOC students in the U.S., the majority studying at Historically Black Colleges and Universities in various STEM and business fields.

The Western Union Foundation is again working with the Institute for International Education (IIE) to accept nominations, select awardees, and distribute the scholarships. IIE is accepting nominations for the 2021 WU Scholars program through October 15th, 2021. In order to be invited to formally apply, students must be nominated by a representative from their higher education institution. Eligibility requirements include:
