This fellowship like the name suggests is for international women who are in the science and technology field. Last year they gave out 250 grants and awards to Graduate and Post-Graduates. They take care of your tuition fee, your cost of living for you and your dependent child if you have any.
Women have been poorly represented in top organizations or industry, Government, finance field and the scientific or technological field. For this reason, industries, government, and private organizations and even schools have set up scholarships for women who have great academic records, and show good leadership qualities.
