Parasol Foundation Women’s LEADERship Scholarship
The Advanced Leadership Foundation in partnership with the Parasol Foundation created a Leadership Scholarship that will benefit four Ukrainian girls in the last year towards graduating from a STEM-related career (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, including computer science).
They will have the possibility to intern at top companies and government agencies, thus helping to accelerate their personal and professional growth. These include Forbes 500 companies, U.S. government organizations, leading non-profits and the world’s most important multilateral organizations.
Internships combine on-site job experiences with training seminars and leadership workshops, which complement to develop and polish professional skills indispensable to build a promising future for themselves and their communities.
The four selected Parasol Foundation Women’s Leadership Scholarship winners will be traveling to Washington DC from early March 2023, through the end of June, provided they have been granted a J1 visa by the U.S. Department of State, which is a legal requirement for internships. The ALF team will assist them in the process of applying for this visa.
