To ensure that the best and the brightest students in Libya have a chance to attend a U.S. university, we have developed the Competitive College Club (CCC). The CCC is open to all students in Libya regardless of nationality, ethnicity, and economic background. Appreciation of diversity is a fundamental value on U.S. campuses and integration starts at home.

The program

The EducationUSA Competitive College Club (CCC) is an intensive group advising program that assists top high school students who want to be competitive applicants to U.S. colleges and universities. Students meet year-round and participate in monthly workshops, specialized sessions, presentations, book clubs, community service activities, and cross-cultural exercises, all conducted in English.

The activities help ensure that students are properly advised as they go through the process of preparing themselves both academically and socially for a U.S. college or university, and work to determine which schools might be a good fit for them.

Please note that the club is not a scholarship. CCC students are encouraged to apply for scholarships through the universities portals and will be advised on how to do so successfully. Admission to the CCC club does not guarantee your admission to US universities. This is only an assistance tool; the full responsibility of admission falls on the student`s choice of the university applied to (budget and strategy for financial aid) as well as the student’s profile.

Who can join the CCC?

The cohort is open to high school students in Libya in their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year of high school who want to apply for undergraduate studies at accredited U.S. institutions.

What does the CCC do?

The club holds two virtual meetings per month with the EducationUSA advisor that includes unique presentations, club projects, and workshops. U.S. universities seek students who are not only the top of their classes academically, but also actively engage within their communities, whether through sports, clubs, the arts or community service. Please note that you will need to attend all the club meetings, two times a month for two hours.

How much does it cost?

The club is free. There is also no need to cover your own transportation to the meetings since they will be virtual.
