The Women for Africa Foundation invites applications for the Learn Africa Scholarship Programme for African Women in Spain and Portugal for the 2022/23 academic year.

The Learn Africa program was launched in 2013 with the aim of promoting knowledge transfer, exchange and capacity building for female African university students through scholarships offered by Spanish universities.

Coinciding with the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Women for Africa Foundation, the program is now back with a training offer broader than ever, combining three different training modalities: face-to-face, online and blended (hybrid), thus allowing female African students to choose the training model that best suits their personal circumstances.
