Women Deliver has announced scholarship recipients for the 2013 Global Conference! We are so excited to bring in more than 1,000 participants from the Global South.
Over half of these scholarship recipients have been chosen to receive airfare, registration, accommodations, and a small per diem to attend. Nearly 7,000 people applied for these scholarships and 15 different organizations reviewed the online applications, making the difficult decision of choosing who should go.
It is wonderful that there are so many talented and committed people across the globe ready to work on these issues. Here are some comments from those participants:
I am honored to be a recipient of the Women Deliver Scholarship. I thank you for your generous support and for helping a local activist like me with the financial support to attend this very important conference. I look forward to participating in this forum, as it will provide me with channels to engage in dialogue with powerful decision-makers and offer me an opportunity to share my experiences. Once again, I want to thank you for making this scholarship possible. I hope to represent the Women Deliver Conference in a positive manner and share the knowledge I receive from attending the conference with my community.
