U.S. Ambassador to Montenegro Margaret Ann Uyehara, together with the English Language Teachers’ Association of Montenegro (ELTAM), representatives of the Ministry of Education and the Municipality of Nikšić, officially launched the Access Microscholarship Program in Nikšić.
The Access Microscholarship Program is a two-year, intensive, afterschool English language learning program for bright, economically disadvantaged students sponsored by the Department of State. Twenty-five students between 13-15 years old from Nikšić were selected for the program. Over the next two years they will improve their English Language skills and gain an appreciation for U.S. culture and values. They will also gain the ability to compete for and participate in future U.S. exchange and study programs.
At the occasion, Ambassador Uyehara told the students selected for the program “Dream big because you can be anything you want with hard work and dedication. The Access program can give you the boost you need to achieve those dreams”
