Brief scholarship description
WAAW Foundation recognizes that Female Education and Science and Technology Innovation and the two most crucial components to poverty alleviation and rapid development in Africa. The plight of the African woman against prejudices and huge societal disadvantages in the often male dominated communities is still vastly unexposed, and requires a strong and compassionate voice. We believe that the woman is the pivot of the family and the family is the pivot of the community. Empowering an African woman is a gift that keeps on giving. At WAAW foundation, we possess an insider’s perspective and understand the challenges as well as the vast opportunities for social change that could yield economic and health benefits on an international level. It is in response to this vision that WAAW foundation was established. WAAW foundation’s annual scholarship initiative is aimed at supporting need based African female STEM-focused college education. WAAW Foundation awards annual scholarships to students who demonstrate need and prove their status as full time students in a STEM related course in an African University. Recipients will become WAAW Ambassadors in their respective communities.
