The current political climate has brought about a wave of concerning treatment of women, with negative stereotypes and poor treatment that can hinder their success in school and the workforce.

It’s important for women to take charge of their futures and make their mark on the world in order to create a better society for generations to come. When women overcome the obstacles they face and secure their desired positions in the workforce, they pave the way for other women and position themselves as mentors for those to follow them.

This scholarship seeks to support young women who are going to college to help society and lower the political barriers placed against women.

Any female high school or undergraduate student of Middle Eastern descent may apply for this scholarship opportunity, but applicants from Pakistan who are planning to major in political science are preferred.

To apply, tell us about a female role model who has overcome challenges on the path to success.
