The Rowe Fund program, founded in 1948, serves an important social function by making interest-free loans for up to USD 15,000 to citizens of Latin America and the Caribbean, in order to help them finance their studies or research in universities across the United States. This program is available to individuals currently studying or wishing to pursue graduate, postgraduate or the last two years of undergraduate studies.
Applications are usually submitted directly from students to the OAS-Rowe Fund Secretariat and are accepted and reviewed year-round at any time during the academic year in the U.S. Applications that comply with the eligibility requirements will be reviewed and evaluated by the Committee. The decision of the Committee, which is final, will be communicated to the applicant by the Secretariat of the Fund.
