The Parasol Foundation Women’s Leadership Scholarships for Ukrainian students
The Parasol Foundation is funding four scholarships for Ukrainian women to study in Washington DC with the Advanced Leadership Foundation (ALF).
Our $71,000 donation is enabling four talented young female Ukrainian refugees in their last year of any STEM-related degree to have a life-changing four-month long professional experience.
The Advanced Leadership Foundation (ALF) works to ensure that all people, regardless of their country of origin or socioeconomic status, have equal access to the opportunities needed to positively impact their economies and communities.
Through our partnership with ALF, we’re aiming to promote the leadership skills of young Ukrainian women studying STEM subjects and help them develop tools that will be instrumental in reconstructing their country and embracing a new future.
ALF has directly trained and empowered 11,000 leaders from around the world and the Parasol Foundation Leadership Scholars from Ukraine will polish their abilities with an immersive career experience in Washington DC during an intensive internship program. The Parasol Foundation Leadership Scholars will also benefit from academic training in soft skills and leadership abilities.
This powerful new Parasol Foundation Women’s Leadership Scholarship initiative with ALF is part of our wider programme of scholarships for women from Ukraine which includes our support for female students to continue their STEM studies at Reichman University in Israel.
