Young Women in Public Affairs 2021

The YWPA Scholarship program goal is to encourage more young women to participate in public affairs* by recognizing a commitment to the volunteer sector, evidence of volunteer leadership achievements and a dedication to empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.

(*Public affairs’ refers to all aspects of community life where decisions have to be made about issues that relate to and affect communities in which people work and live).

A panel session among the finalists would allow the young women to gain experience in public speaking. In order for more women to be represented in key decision making positions worldwide, we must encourage young women to pursue careers or seek leadership positions in public policy making, government and volunteer organizations and further their education with these aims in view

We would like to encourage the young women of our local school communities to apply
