OFP supports learners and students to apply for scholarships and admission to colleges and universities in the United States. Over the last eight years, the dedicated EducationUSA team has helped more than 2,200 South African students make their dream of studying in the United States come true.

Learners and students with a strong academic record, robust participation in extracurricular activities, involvement in leadership roles, and an excellent community service record are encouraged to apply to the programme. OFP finances the cost of the application process, including registration fees for the required standardised examinations.

This free-of-charge EducationUSA Programme includes seminars and meetings that prepare South African citizens or permanent residents to apply for and pursue undergraduate or graduate studies in America.

The OFP undergraduate programme is open to current matriculants and gap-year students only. Students who wish to pursue postgraduate studies in the United States are requested to complete the graduate application form.

Successful applicants will work with a team of EducationUSA advisers from April 2021 to August 2022 to try to secure places and financial assistance to begin study in the US in August 2022.
