Programme launched to perfect students’ English

The Congo-Brazzaville Fulbright Alumni Association, or CBFAA, and the United States embassy in the Republic of Congo have launched the English Access Microscholarship Program, to perfect secondary school students’ spoken and written English.

The programme, supported by the American State Department, aims to prepare students to participate in US academic exchanges, enrol for studies in American universities and apply for jobs for which English is a criterion for selection, reported the Agence d’Information d’Afrique Centrale, or ADIAC.

The programme finances all students’ expenses, such as books, stationery, transport and food.

CBFAA was set up in 2012 and is supported by the US State Department. It brings together former Congolese students who have studied in the United States, with the aim of carrying out community and social initiatives, reported ADIAC.
