The Justina Mutale Foundation, in collaboration with the European School of Economics (ESE) is providing Business and Leadership Scholarships, and with Rai University of India, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Scholarships for underprivileged African women.
According to Justina Mutale, “Our scholarship programmes aims to give young women from Africa an opportunity of a lifetime. Cross-cultural learning and studying abroad can be transformative to one’s future and outlook on life.”
Mutale added that the Justina Mutale Scholarship has been founded to equip women with practical skills, knowledge and information to bridge the gender gap. The high poverty levels in Africa have contributed to the low number of female students in universities and colleges. She said the scholarship would help women acquire tertiary education and prepare them to take up leadership positions to help Africa realise the aspirations of Agenda 2063 and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs).
