Scholarship Opportunities for Leaders of Global South Founded NGOs

We have been able to obtain two partial scholarships. They are explicitly intended for leaders of Global South founded NGOs.

These scholarships have been offered through the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs. These scholarships cover:  

  • Training fees only


  • All eligible applicants will be automatically considered for Moynihan Institute scholarships.
  • Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis until March 1, 2019. Early applicants therefore receive the advantage of consideration from a smaller pool of applicants.

* If you are interested in participating in the 2019 Institute and do not receive a scholarship but need funding support, please seek funding from your own organization’s donor pool. 

Billing, Payment and Cancellation Information 

If your application is accepted, you will receive a notice of acceptance by email. This notification will include an invoice and payment information.  

Cancellation policy: Cancellations are accepted without charge of tuition if provided written notification by May 15, 2019. Cancellations received May 16 -  May 24, 2019 will be charged 50% of the total tuition fee. Cancellations after May 24, 2019 will unfortunately result in no refund of tuition.

Acceptance of all participants is based upon the extent of significant management and leadership experience, level of responsibility within the organization, motivation, and sector, size, geographical and gender diversity.

The general application deadline is May 15, 2019
