Madrid, 31st March 2023. From Thursday 30th March until 12th April, African women university students can submit their applications to apply for one of the postgraduate scholarships of the Women for Africa Foundation’s Learn Africa programme.
A total of 27 continuation scholarships and 77 new scholarships will be offered this year, coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the programme, most of them for master’s degrees, although 10 research stays will also be offered, one for doctoral studies, one for internships and three for university-accredited qualifications.
48 of these scholarships are face-to-face, 21 are online and 8 are blended. 40 of these studies will be taught in Spanish, 17 in English, 10 in French, 8 will be bilingual English/Spanish and 2 will be bilingual French/Spanish. Planeta Formación y Universidades, an associated entity of the programme, is also offering 10 full face-to-face scholarships for bachelor’s and master’s degrees according to demand at its Rabat Campus this year.
This year’s wide range of scholarships would not have been possible without the unwavering commitment of the programme’s more than 50 partners, including universities, educational centres, and private funders such as GMV and the ASISA foundation. The latter have been joined this year by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, which will be supporting the programme by financing an internship grant for a doctoral woman student in Biomedicine at the University of León.
Also new this year, the call for proposals includes two research scholarships funded by the ANESVAD foundation, which aim to study NTDs with cutaneous manifestations from a gender perspective.
Since 2013, 293 African women students from 34 different countries have benefited from one or more of the 314 scholarships offered under this programme, which continues to grow year after year in order to provide training and socio-professional development opportunities for African women.
