Working to Advance STEM Education for African Girls
This year, the AWP Network will work with the WAAW foundation to support African girls in STEM. The launch of this need-based scholarship program will support African girls studying a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related degree course.
To qualify for the program, girls must be: (a) of African origin, living and studying in Africa, (b) currently enrolled in an undergraduate B.S. degree program, (c) studying STEM related courses at a university or college, (d) demonstrate financial need, and (e) have an excellent academic record.
Mary Olushoga, Founder of the AWP Network said, “we are excited about forging this partnership with the WAAW Foundation. We look forward to mentoring and supporting African girls in STEM, this is why we are here.”
