🏛 Degree: Bachelors



WMF’s signature program, Empowerment Through Education (ETE), provides undergraduate scholarships to developing country nationals to study in their home country or a neighboring country. WMF believes it is important to educate people locally and to encourage WMF Scholars to become change agents in their local communities.

WMF Scholars study for degrees ranging from medicine to engineering. WMF encourages applications from those interested in pursuing degrees that will best help their local communities – medicine & health sciences, community development, law, education, social work, business, information technology, agriculture and engineering.  A major component of the ETE program is community service. All scholars are required to volunteer for a minimum of 100 hours per year in order to remain a WMF Scholar.


Eligibility



WMF’s ideal candidate is a student, male or female, from a country in the developing world, who:

• Successfully completed a secondary education, with good  to excellent grades
• Will be studying in their country or another country in the developing world
• Plans to live and work in their own country after they graduate
• Has volunteered prior to applying for this scholarship and/or is willing to volunteer while  receiving the WMF scholarship
• May have some other funds available for their education, but will not be able to go to school without a scholarship


Benefits

ETE scholarships range from $300 USD to $3000 USD annually and are provided throughout the undergraduate education of the recipient. The average scholarship amount is $1400. Scholarships may be used for tuition and fees, books and materials, and room rent.

Application

To apply for the Empowerment Through Education (ETE) program, you must submit a complete application via the online scholarship application portal (preferred method) or via postal mail to the Foundation’s office. The 2017 Empowerment Through Education online application will be available from 1 December 2016 to 1 April 2017.
