MPOWER Financing, FinTech, Education Loans, Studyportals, Scholarships, Canada, USAMPOWER Financing, a mission-driven FinTech firm and the leading provider of education loans to promising international students, announced a strategic partnership with Studyportals, an organisation dedicated to providing transparency of global study choices. This new partnership will heighten awareness of financing options available to international students pursuing higher education in Canada and the U.S.

“Our mission is to empower the world to choose education and to support students throughout their full decision-making journey,” said Edwin van Rest, Co-Founder and CEO of Studyportals. “Being able to connect students with more options to finance their studies means that we can help even more students access education opportunities. Along with a lack of awareness and information, a lack of finances is a huge barrier for many to reach their education dreams.”

The partnership between MPOWER Financing and Studyportals will ensure prospective students planning their study abroad journey with Studyportals can take advantage of MPOWER’s no-cosigner loans and scholarships, including a recent commitment of $500,000 in scholarships to refugee and international students. MPOWER’s 2022 Social Impact Report found that for 91% of surveyed international students, the availability of an educational loan was instrumental for studying abroad.

“MPOWER’s seamless global financing solution, now available on the Studyportals platform, will support students in their journey to North American universities with same-day loan offers and visa support letters,” said Manu Smadja, CEO and Co-Founder of MPOWER Financing.

Both firms leverage technology to break down barriers around education. MPOWER Financing offers scholarships and no-cosigner loans to students from 200+ countries pursuing an education at 400+ universities across Canada and the United States. Studyportals is the most comprehensive study choice platform, featuring 250,000 English-taught programs from 3,750+ institutions and attracting 52 million visitors annually from around the world.
