Hiwot Mekuanent will be applying her doctoral work at Queen’s Faculty of Law to help improve the lives of people with disabilities in her homeland Ehtiopia. Admitted into the school’s PhD program as an “exceptional faculty leader” from the University of Gondar, she has received a Mastercard Foundation at Queen’s University Scholarship to complete her studies.
Scholars who study at the University of Gondar were asked to finish the sentence “I envision a world where” for International Peoples With Disabilities Day and they answered by saying unique but influential things.
The Mastercard Foundation’s Scholars Program at the University of Gondar organized a Celebration that spanned 2 days and covered many activities. The event was held from the 27th through the 28th of November 2018.
The University of Gondar’s Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program has accepted a new batch of scholars, who will be Ethiopia’s next transformative leaders. And on the 10th and 11th of November 2018 the Scholars Program office organized an Induction Program that allowed the scholars to get well acquainted with what is in store for them.
The Scholars Program at the University of Gondar, to help the scholars find their inner capacity, organizes various trainings. One such training is the Life Skills training.
The Scholars Program at UoG is planning to conduct a scholars week (the week of the 26th) and invites all students with disabilities to showcase their talents in a grand completion to win amazing prizes.
The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at UoG plans to hold an afternoon conference, as part of its Scholars Week, under the running theme of “Inclusive Education for a Democratic Society.” For more information click on this link and check out the advert!
The vehicle is, without a doubt, ideal for educational institutions and the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Office and the University of Gondar are creating an atmosphere suitable for all.
The Mastercard Foundation Scholars program is in its second year and the scholars are arriving on campus.
As part of this project, the program will fund eight proposals with a maximum budget of up to $60,000 USD per proposal.
