WMI Student & Graduate Scholar Fellowships
WMI provides Student Scholars and Graduate Scholars with the unique opportunity to expand their social and professional networks. WMI Student Scholars are encouraged to create strong bonds and assist one another throughout the process of succeeding academically and professionally through the creation of fellowship groups. These groups are founded by the Scholars themselves and have led to the building of support systems that provide networking and mentorship opportunities and the creation of group community service projects and activities. WMI provides a small matching grant program to help these groups operate.
Many WMI Student and Graduate Scholars would not have the chance to meet one another if not for their WMI connection. Our Student and Graduate Scholars are leaders who advocate for change, are dedicated to serving their communities, and care about the future of their nations.
WMI provides a small matching grant program to help our Fellowships operate. Six WMI Fellowships have been established in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Nepal and South Sudan. By supporting national, regional, and worldwide gatherings of WMI Scholars, our goal of enhancing the lives of others through education and service, coupled with developing participants’ professionals skills, brings tremendous benefits that were once beyond reach to individuals from econonmically-challenged backgrounds.
