We fund Postgraduate Education for African Talent like You
Gwara was founded by Africans for Africans. At Gwara, we believe that in Africa, talent is abundant but access to opportunity is not. Our mission is to provide everyone access to the education and career opportunities that have until now only been open to the lucky or the elite. We help you apply for and finance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-related) Masters Degrees in the US!
Did you know?
A major reason why people don’t get admitted into schools is because their personal statements & essays are not convincing enough for Admission Committees. At Gwara we help you position yourself most attractively to schools and help you access funds to settle those bills that are not included in scholarships that you qualify for. Simply join our Program, and gain instant access to these benefits. We will use our wealth of experience to lead you in the right direction regarding which programs are the right fit for you, strategies for acing the GRE, applying to schools, and so forth. What's more? Once you get admitted and secure a loan with us, we will link you to mentors and continue to support you until you land your dream role post-graduation!
