“I would not be where I am today without my WID membership which has provided professional development, mentorship, and networking opportunities with a strong and encouraging group of women who have not only helped me enter the Development field but excel in it. I am so grateful for the Women in Development scholarship which has allowed me to continue my membership that has opened up so many opportunities to me over the past two and a half years!”
 – Sarah Harrison

Important Notes from Scholarship Task Force
The goal of the scholarship is to assist those experiencing financial constraints and who are already in the development field.  WIDGB supports those new to the field by offering reduced-membership fees. Click here for more details on membership options.
