Last Call for Scholarships to the Women Deliver 2019 Conference

Posted by Katy Elliott on April 16, 2018 at 8:59 am



 

Women Deliver is committed to making our conferences accessible to people across all ages, geographies, and backgrounds. Our scholarship program provides financial assistance to people who would otherwise be unable to cover the cost of attendance. It is open to individuals of any age, but preference will be given to applicants from low- and middle-income countries and/or vulnerable populations who are working to advance gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women—including sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Scholarship Includes:

  • Registration Fee
  • Ground Transportation (days of conference only)
  • Economy Airfare
  • Per Diem (days of conference only)
  • Visa Reimbursement
  • Hotel Accommodation (days of conference only)
  • Health Insurance

Scholarship Requirements:

Upon acceptance, scholarship recipients must be willing to complete the following commitments.
  • Participate in the online communication and advocacy boot-camp in winter or spring of 2019
  • Hold at least one policy dialogue post-conference in home country
  • Secure visa at least 3 months prior to the conference (Canada allows applications 6 months prior to the event)
  • Participate fully in the conference (on-site attendance for the full duration)
  • Respond promptly to requests for information from the organizers
Scholarship selection is based on a non-biased scoring system, performed by an independent Scholarship Review Committee. Only a limited number of scholarships are available and applicants are strongly encouraged to seek other/additional funding sources.
