Women Deliver will be providing a number of scholarships for Women Deliver 2013. The process has begun with the Youth Scholarship application, and the general scholarship will be available soon as well.
From our colleagues at Women Deliver:
Women Deliver is excited to announce that the Youth Scholarship application for Women Deliver 2013 opens today for young people who will be under 30 years old at the time of the conference! We will offer full scholarships to a select number of participants in order to maximize participation from those who are traditionally under-represented; namely, young people and those from the Global South. This support includes conference registration, round-trip economy class airfare, hotel accomodations and a fixed stipend for visa fees and other incidentals.
Please take note of the following dates and ensure you apply for the appropriate scholarship:
- February 15, 2012: Youth Scholarship Application Opens (must be under 30 years old at the time of the conference).
- March 26, 2012: Regular Scholarship Application Opens (must be 30 years old or older at the time of the conference).
- April 15, 2012: Deadline for ALL Scholarship Applications
The 3rd Global Conference, Women Deliver 2013, will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 28-30 May 2013. This conference will be our biggest yet, with more than 5,000 expected attendees from across the globe, including heads of state, policymakers, youth, media, corporate representatives, health workers, academics, and advocates.
Once we have received all applications, our Selection Committee will announce winners in July 2012 to allow for sufficient time to obtain visas and make travel arrangements. Early registration opens on June 1, 2012. If you have any questions regarding the application or scholarship process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
