What is Competitive College Club?
EducationUSA Ukraine Competitive College Club (CCC) is a group for highly motivated and talented Ukrainian students that are applying to colleges and universities in the USA. The CCC serves as a cohort advising platform for better preparation for admissions throughout the application process. This includes, essay writing sessions, tests preparation seminars, mock interview sessions, volunteering opportunities, leadership development and many more.
While CCC does not guarantee admissions to students, it is designed to assist self-organized and independent Ukrainian students to have better chance at admissions to U.S. colleges or universities.
Even though CCC has been around for a while in other countries of the world, Kyiv EducationUSA Advising Center is taking this initiative for the first time!
YOU will have a chance to help us shape the program for the next generations to come. Therefore flexibility and creativity are the MUST if you want to be the CCC member this year.
Participation in CCC is free but requires filling in the application and passing a simple interview with an EducationUSA adviser. The CCC is open to all eligible students in Ukraine regardless of nationality, ethnicity, and economic background.
