Learn Africa-Scholarships Programme for african women students in Spanish Universities

NOMBRE DEL PROYECTO: Learn Africa-Scholarships Programme for african women students in Spanish Universities

PAÍS/CIUDAD: Spain /

DURACIÓN: 2013 and onwards

In line with its mission to contribute to development in Africa through its women, MxA has launched Learn Africa, a scholarship programme for African women students and researchers in Spanish universities. It aims to foster knowledge and skills transfer via the young ladies from the continent. After finishing their studies in our country, they return to their places of origin to benefit their communities, thus contributing to the advancement of African societies.

To attain this ambitious goal, the Women for Africa Foundation can count on the collaboration of important Spanish universities of recognised prestige, who guarantee academic excellence. There are twenty two universities currently participating in the programme. 

This scholarship programme is based on the collaboration agreements signed by Spanish universities that are welcoming the African women students and researchers. The MxA Foundation is responsible for selecting the beneficiaries as well as supporting them in obtaining their visas and monitoring and evaluating their stay in our country.

Océane (Madagascar), Tulsi (Kenya), Farida (Tanzania) and Sally (Gabon) are four of the 18 young African ladies who have had the opportunity to enjoy an undergraduate and postgraduate scholarship for studies in some of the universities collaborating with this programme. Thanks to this, they are having an enormously productive experience from both the educational and personal point of view. Similarly, the host universities benefit from the presence of young people with a high level of education who make excellent use of the studies they follow.
