Once a year, VisaPlace awards a merit-based scholarship for students pursuing higher education in the U.S. and Canada.
VisaPlace is a leading immigration law firm that helps individuals and businesses visit or relocate to Canada and the U.S., and seeks to make educational opportunities available to those committed to studying and school. Any student who is entering or currently attending university or college as a full-time student is eligible.
VisaPlace hopes to help alleviate some of the financial stress for a hard working student. VisaPlace’s founder, Michael Niren, thinks this kind of encouragement goes beyond a dollar sign and strives to support the success of inspired youth.
