SCHOLARSHIP FOR AFRICAN WOMEN STUDENTS
SCHOLARSHIP FOR AFRICAN WOMEN STUDENTS

Applications are now invited for the Scholarship for African Women Students. All the selected African Female Undergraduate and Graduate Students for Scholarships will be studying at Spanish and Portuguese Universities.

Thanks to these scholarships, the selected students can complement their university education in our country, and then invest what has been learned to benefit their communities, thus contributing to the progress of African societies.
