University of the People (UoPeople) is the world’s first tuition-free, non-profit, online academic institution dedicated to opening access to higher education globally for all qualified individuals, despite financial, geographic or societal constraints.

Founded in 2009 by educational entrepreneur Shai Reshef, UoPeople is affiliated with the United Nations GAID, the Clinton Global Initiative, and Yale Law School ISP. UoPeople has signed collaborative partnership agreements with New York University (NYU) to accept students; and with Hewlett-Packard (HP), through the Catalyst Initiative, to provide student internship opportunities. UoPeople offers undergraduate programs in Business Administration and Computer Science. To date, more than 1500 students from 132 countries have been accepted. Of students polled consecutively each term, 95% would recommend UoPeople to a peer.

With its tuition-free online programs, University of the People is opening access to higher education for all those constrained, as well as building a scalable and replicable model capable of changing the very nature of higher education. The non-profit UoPeople has managed to succeed in cutting down almost the entire cost of higher education, and does not charge for tuition or books/materials. All that is asked is for students to pay a one-time application processing fee ($50) and, beginning with all new applications created on August 27, 2012, subsequent modest examination processing fees ($100) levied per course. There are no other fees whatsoever.

UoPeople strives to ensure, in keeping with its mission, that no qualified individual is excluded for financial reasons. To assist students in financial need, UoPeople has dedicated student scholarship funds. Corporate sponsors include Hewlett-Packard’s sponsorship of 100 HP Scholars as part of the UoPeople Women Scholarship Fund; and Intel Foundation’s sponsorship of women students from Haiti. Soon, UoPeople will launch a Micro-Scholarship Portal, the first of its kind, to allow donors to contribute to individual students.

The undergraduate program in Computer Science at Virginia Tech is both challenging and rewarding. The objectives of the program are to provide majors with a balanced breadth and depth of knowledge in computer science that allows them the choice between continuing their education in graduate school and beginning their professional career, and to excel in either environment.

STEM Camps

The African Girls STEM camp is part of a major effort by WAAW Foundation to attract more African girls (ages 11-15yrs) into STEM disciplines early in life when career decisions are made.

What is the WAAW STEM Camp?
1.An opportunity for girls to learn about role models in STEM careers, and build mentor relationships.
2.Outstanding instructors with extensive backgrounds in Science, Technology and Math teaching the workshops.
3.A one-week introduction to the world of technology and engineering, with intense individual and team participation.
4.Practical, hands-on lessons promoting experiential learning.
5.A fun residential camping experience making friends and promoting peer communities.
6.A hands-on experience with high-tech equipment and processes.

Scholarships

Our $500 scholarship program initiated in 2008, is aimed at providing timely financial support to academically promising female African Students who are currently in STEM related undergraduate disciplines in an African College or University. Awardees must demonstrate financial need and a strong commitment to participating in building Africa. The initiative also promotes peers networks that provide support and mentoring to ensure completion in their chosen STEM fields.

Mentoring African Women in STEM

One of the keys to improving livelihoods in sub-Saharan Africa is to build and sustain a strong, effective talent pool for the delivery of Science and Technology innovation. This requires fostering the STEM capacity of women while strengthening the mentoring and peer networks.
This initiative expands the impact of WAAWs STEM camps and scholarships, easing the participants access to mentors while building their skills and professional networks. In turn, it brings the groundbreaking work of Professional African women in STEM to the national, regional and global stages, where it is much needed.
