Fursona Pins is in the process of running an Ancient Egyptian-themed Kickstarter and wants to give back to the SWANA community.

SWANA is the South West Asian and North African area and covers those geographical regions. The diaspora is rich and diverse, with a significant cultural history that should be passed down through the rising generations.

This scholarship aims to support students of SWANA heritage as they embark on their educational journeys and pursue their dreams.

Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student of SWANA heritage may apply for this scholarship, but applicants studying Egyptology, cuneiform studies, ancient history, or a related field are preferred, as are applicants who speak Arabic, Coptic, and/or Syriac.

To apply, tell us how you think knowledge of cultural heritage and history can improve the lives of people in SWANA countries and the diaspora.
