With the support of the Department of Economy, Knowledge and Employment of the Government of the Canary Islands, the Women for Africa Foundation is launching, for the second year, an online scholarship program with the aim of offering new learning opportunities to African women and, especially, to Spanish-speakers or with a high level of Spanish, since most of the studies are taught in this language.
The 2022 call includes a wide variety of courses in different subjects, including language courses, short university courses and specialized courses designed by the Universities of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and La Laguna, and their foundations, Fundación Canaria Universitaria de la Universidad de Las Palmas and Fundación Canaria General of the University of La Laguna, as well as by the Technological Institute of the Canary Islands (ITC).
All of them will be taken online and will be delivered between August and December 2022.
Places are limited, so only one application per person is allowed. Hurry up and don’t run out of your scholarship!
The application deadline has been extended for those scholarships that have not yet been filled. The registration period will remain open until July 17, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. (Madrid).
Only applications submitted through the website will be accepted.
To apply for a scholarship you will need to attach the following documents:
Through this call, language courses, short university courses and specialized courses are offered. Remember that all of them will be taken online.
Bear in mind that a high level of the language in which the courses are taught (Spanish, English or French) is required.
The final outcome will be published at the end of July on our website (www.mujeresporafrica.es). Only selected candidates will be personally contacted.
To apply for Learn Africa Canarias scholarships you NEED to register on the platform. The procedure to register is the same as in previous editions, below you can find an explanatory video. If you are already registered, you can use the same username.

A committee of evaluators from the “Women for Africa Foundation” and the Canarias Islands Government will conduct a first evaluation of all the applications on the basis of the documents received.
Specifically, the following documents will be taken into account:
The final selection will be agreed upon with each of the partner universities and the results will be personally communicated to each of the selected candidates.
The final outcome will not be personally communicated to unsuccessful candidates.
Once the selected candidates have been informed, they will have seven working days to accept the scholarship. Failure to express acceptance within the established period implies the loss of the scholarship and its reassignment to the next candidate according to the order established in the selection process.
