University of the People is pleased to announce the introduction of the UoPeople Women Scholarship Fund, which was formally announced by UoPeople President Shai Reshef on July 11th at the DLDWomen12.
The UoPeople Women Scholarship Fund is dedicated to assisting in equalizing both the University’s and regional gender inequalities in higher education. Currently, only 20% of University of the People’s student body is female, and UoPeople strongly desires to change this ratio.
Hewlett-Packard is the first corporate sponsor, with a pledge to fund 100 female students towards the pursuit of their Associate Degrees.
Gabi Zedlmayer, Vice President, Sustainability and Social Innovation, HP explains, “HP has a longstanding commitment to global citizenship, education, and gender equality. We are supporting UoPeople in their most critical mission to change the lives of many women through education and technology. This decision supports our goal to transform teaching and learning through innovation and technology and to help the women around the world to advance professionally.”
University of the People is exceptionally pleased the receive support from HP to fund 100 women, and hopes to be able to reach and empower 1,000 women with your help.
