LAWA Leadership and Advocacy Scholarships for Women

The Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa (LAWA) Fellowship Program was founded in order to train women's human rights lawyers from Africa who are committed to returning home to their countries in order to advance the status of women and girls throughout their careers.
The scholarships are given every year.

The LAWA Program helps defray the costs for women's rights attorneys from Africa who would not otherwise be able to afford a Master of Laws degree focusing on international women's human rights and the additional leadership training.

The Fellowship provides the tuition for the Foundations of American Law and Legal Education Course (a US$2,200 benefit) and for the LL.M. degree (a U.S. $39,390 benefit) at the Georgetown University Law Center, as well as professional development training.

Over 50 women's human rights advocates from Botswana, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe have participated in the LAWA Program.

The LAWA Fellows earn a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree at Georgetown with an emphasis on international women's human rights.

Deadline: September 30 (every year).
