We worked closely with the Ministry of Education to get permission to offer this scholarship to students across Liberia. iEARN-Liberia staff also worked with the Ministry of Education and Peace Corps Volunteers to help the students adjust upon their return and to set up a system by which they will receive credit for their year in the U.S. and advance to the next grade level in Liberia.
