  • About the Scholars Program

    Our scholars are selected from a large pool of talented applicants. Merick Scholars participate in a one year long intensive academic program where they get to learn advanced English skills, Mathematics, computer science and entrepreneurial leadership in addition to creating a community project that contributes to Women Empowerment in their community.

    During and after attending Merick Academy our scholars get a life time access to the Merick Academy network and resources that include support for university search and application, mentorship, and access to local and international opportunities through our scholar network platform.


    Merick Academy can not afford to pay University tuition for its students. We depend on public donations and work with several well wishers, communities, universities, organizations, foundations, and companies to raise funding for our students who have been accepted into University. If you would like to partner with us to help more of our students access higher education, please reach out. If you would like to donate please donate here.
