What you can expect from us
We provide scholarships to a selected few Afghan female talents. Please be aware that our funds are very limited so as of now we can only support a maximum of 20 talents per year with a scholarship.
If you qualify for a scholarship, we will cover your tuition, visa cost, travel cost, and also provide a life stipend. Please note that we can not cover expenses for family members, only for you.
👉 Please get in touch if you have the means to fund more Afghan talents or donate directly.
This program is dedicated to supporting the women of Afghanistan in their quest for basic human rights: to life, liberty, education & security.

The four steps of your journey
"I am a software developer working in Germany. Before 2021, I was an assistant professor at Herat University and also studied in Germany at TU Berlin. My master's research topic was related to violence against women in Afghanistan.
I am a proud member of this team and, if you meet the requirements, encourage you to apply."
The entire first Cohort of 10 Afghan girls is now in safety, studying Computer Science at German universities in Berlin, Ingolstadt & elsewhere. We are immensly proud of this achievement and cannot wait to meet the inspiring women of the next generation.
"I can't express how excited I am to be in this incredible journey with my fellow amazing girls!"
-Laila, student of first Cohort
