Women’s Leadership Scholarship
Application Deadline: 14 March 2008
The Women’s Leadership Scholarship programme creates educational opportunities for women activists, grassroots leaders and organisers from the Global South and/or from indigenous groups. This scholarship supports study, research and leadership training to assist women in their pursuit of solutions to the critical social, environmental, health and economic problems facing their countries and communities. The selection committee awards four to eight scholarships a year and recipients may enroll in programmes of study at accredited institutions worldwide that cover a range of human rights and development issues at the non-doctoral graduate level including gender, reproductive health, HIV/AIDS, child exploitation, human trafficking, infant and maternal mortality, conflict resolution, environmental justice, global fair trade, agro-ecology and sustainable development.

I encourage We Can Do readers to think of women with disabilities you know in developing countries who might qualify for this scholarship. Please encourage them to apply. They should learn how at the web site for the Women’s Leadership Scholarship.
We Can Do learned of this opportunity through contacts at Mobility International USA (MIUSA).
Also at We Can Do: catch up with the news; explore resources, toolkits, or funding and fellowship opportunities that might be helpful for your organization; find research, reports, papers, or statistics; or look up conferences, events, call for papers, or education/training opportunities.
