Scholarships for Women

Recent surveys show that women are seriously underrepresented in colleges and universities, particularly in scientific departments. Such a situation is clearly unacceptable in a society where democratic ideals are continuously advocated and equality is considered so important.

The aim behind the scholarships for women is to radically change this situation and open paths towards gender equality in academia.

Offering generous scholarships specifically to women at various prestigious colleges and universities, these programs hope to challenge the androcentrism characterizing a large number of educational institutions and to promote a smoother integration of women in higher education.
