The Women for Africa Foundation is inviting African women for the Learn Africa scholarship program for African Women in Spain and Portugal for the 2019/2020 academic session.

This programme, promoted by the Women for Africa Foundation, aims to promote the transfer of knowledge, exchange and training of African women undergraduate and graduate students through scholarships in Spanish universities that collaborate in this initiative.

Thanks to these scholarships, the selected students can complement their university education in their country, and then invest what has been learned to benefit their communities, thus contributing to the progress of African societies. The scholarships are funded mostly by the universities participating in the program – all of them, members of the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (CRUE)
