The MPower Special Scholarship is a series of exciting monthly scholarships awarded by MPower Financing, a public benefit corporation that helps international students pursue their education in the USA or Canada.

What makes the application process even more fun is the themes MPower Financing sets for each month. For example, for the month of November, the scholarship is Thanksgiving-themed and asks applicants to talk about the things they are extremely thankful for on their application essay.
