ECA/AEECA -English Access Microscholarship Program: The English Access Microscholarship Program (Access) is a global program supported by the U.S. Department of State. Access provides a foundation of English language skills to talented 13-20 year-olds from economically disadvantaged sectors through after-school classes and intensive sessions. Access gives participants English skills that may lead to better jobs and educational prospects. The program also gives participants the opportunity to gain an appreciation for U.S. culture and values. It is intended to increase their ability to participate successfully in the socio-economic development of their countries and improve their chances of participating in educational and exchange programs in the United States. Since its inception in 2004, approximately 110,000 students in more than 80 countries have participated in the Access Program. The goal of the Access Program is to equip talented students who possess a minimal knowledge of English with effective communication and critical thinking skills through meaning interaction, cooperative learning strategies, and real-life contexts. Additionally, Access seeks to prepare students for conversational English language skills with native and nonnative speakers of English through a variety of experiential learning activities. Selected participants must be bright, economically disadvantaged 13- to 20-year-old students with beginning level of English. Participants should commit to enroll in classes during the full two year program. Students will graduate with certificates of completion from the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine at the end of their two-year program. The project implementation location should include the following oblast centers/towns throughout Ukraine: Bakhmut, Berdiansk, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Kherson, Kyiv, Mariupol, Mykolayiv, Odesa, Slovyansk, Zaporizhzhya, and Zhytomyr.
