What is Project Access?

We’re building the world’s most entrepreneurial non-profit startup to unlock top-universities for underprivileged students

Learning potential is equally distributed - but access to top-universities is not.
We want to do something about that.

Launched in 2016, Project Access is a global non-profit startup with activities in more than 20 countries. Through a tech-enabled mentoring program, we help international students from underprivileged backgrounds build the confidence to apply to a top-university, support them during their application and prepare them for their first day.

To date, we’ve helped more than 2,500 applicants from all over the world apply to the UK’s 8 best universities - more than 50% got an offer from their top 3 university. Our mentor base consists of more than 3,500 top-university students and our startup is powered by 8 employees and 205 entrepreneurial volunteer team members. Since our launch, we’ve raised more than $400,000 through grants, donations and revenue.

We are now ready to take on the inequalities in US admissions.
