Women’s Global Leadership Journey



The WIN Scholarship programme gives you an opportunity to donate to the future of women. Donate now: and be a part of creating a WINConference that works for all


The WIN Scholarship programme of the WIN Fund offers free or subsidized conference participation to women who exemplify the potential to become leaders of tomorrow, and to proven leaders operating in difficult economic environments. 

Applicants to this highly competitive program are selected based on their economic need, and their potential to effect change and inspire others in their home countries.
