NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 23, 2019 / Eran Eyal, Founder and CEO of Shopin, is excited to announce three post-secondary scholarships valued at $3,600.00 (USD) each. To be eligible, individuals must be immigrant students currently pursuing or in the process of pursuing a post-secondary education in the United States.
The application process requires candidates to submit a 500-word essay detailing the hardship of immigrating to the United States to pursue a post-secondary education, including how they aim to use the scholarship to achieve academic and financial success.
Applicants will also be required to provide copies of their foreign passport, identification and/or a United States Visa, as well as documentation supporting their legal status in the United States, a Green Card (if available) or appropriate visa, and a letter of acceptance from their chosen post-secondary institution.
The scholarship opens on October 23, 2019, with deadlines for applications being December 10, 2019.
As an immigrant in the United States himself, Eran Eyal knows firsthand the difficulties faced by students in immigrating to the United States to obtain an education. “In my teens and twenties, I always dreamt of coming to the United States to study, but it was economically and practically unattainable for me,” shares Eyal.
Eyal intimates, “When I eventually made my way over to the US in 2014, it was very challenging. The United States is brimming with enormous promise and opportunity, especially for tech entrepreneurs such as myself, The barriers are however, significant. Costs are high, rentals are astronomical and require immigrants to have 6-12 months rent upfront or guarantors. Loans are difficult to access.”
“I want to help pave the way for tomorrow’s promising entrepreneurs and thought leaders and believe that immigrants are part of the backbone of the future of this amazing country. Somewhere in the coming generational wave is the next Satya Nadella, Elon Musk, Johnny Ives, Charlize Theron, or Trevor Noah. I firmly believe that access to quality education is one of the absolutely essential tools for the next generation of talent, that will form the backbone of America’s economy, society and innovation.”
The Eran Eyal Scholarships aim to reduce these challenges by alleviating some of the financial burden faced by immigrant students. Through the establishment of the Eran Eyal Scholarships, Eran Eyal aims to support innovation from immigrant students obtaining an education in the United States.
