Scholarships Program – Overview

The Daughters for Life Foundation offers full scholarships in North America at the undergraduate level. We have partnerships with some of the world’s top universities and are looking forward to forming new collaborations with leading international academic institutions.

Our Scholarship Program is developed in collaboration with leading Canadian and international academic institutions and educational organizations in order to assist deserving female students from the Middle East with post-secondary education, including travel, tuition, accommodation, and food. Our scholarship recipients are chosen on the basis of their excellent academic performance despite financial hardship or adversity, a demonstrable ability to make an outstanding contribution to improving the lives of girls and young women through extra-curricular activities, work or volunteer experiences, and their financial need. Our goal is to invest in and foster their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead.

Application Deadline has been extended to February 26th, 2016
