Sponsor An African Girl in STEM
Supporting the Next Generation of STEM Leaders
The WAAW Foundation’s scholarship program is designed to empower African girls to pursue their dreams in STEM fields and become the next generation of innovators and leaders. By providing financial assistance, mentorship, and networking opportunities, we are helping these young women overcome barriers and reach their full potential.
Each scholarship recipient receives:
- Tuition and living expenses: This financial support ensures that scholars can focus on their studies without worrying about financial hardship.
- Mentorship: Experienced STEM professionals provide guidance and support to scholars, helping them navigate academic challenges and career paths.
- Networking opportunities: Scholarship recipients gain access to a network of STEM professionals, expanding their professional connections and opportunities.
- College-to-Secondary outreach programs: Scholars actively engage in STEM outreach programs, inspiring younger generations of girls to pursue STEM education.
$500 Scholarships are awarded to economically disadvantaged bright students to support tuition and living expenses. $50 is an administrative overhead cost. This scholarship is renewable each year, contingent on the scholar’s continued academic success and active engagement in the College-to-Secondary outreach programs.
By supporting these young women, you are empowering them to become changemakers who will address global challenges, drive economic growth, and create a more sustainable and equitable world.
