The Women in Humanitarian Action Scholarship is available for students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership. The scholarships have been established as part of the IKEA Foundation’s investment in the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership’s initiative to support access to ongoing education for women.

This scholarship provides successful applicants with a contribution of 100% of their course and university amenities fees for the second part of the course (AHL703 and AHL704). Preference will be given to citizens from countries below 0.85 on the Human Development Index of the United Nations Development Program.

Please note that this form is for students of the Humanitarian Leadership Program only. If you are enrolled in a different program, you will need to use a different form to apply for this scholarship. You can find links to other application forms here.
