At GLOW, we know that for women to reach their full potential, education can’t end with a high school diploma. Education is the most powerful tool there is to increase and create economic opportunities for nations across the globe. That is why GLOW is focused on providing college and university scholarships to disadvantaged women in developing countries.
GLOW takes into consideration a multitude of factors when reviewing scholarship applications. We review the KCSE (Kenya Certificate of Education) scores, the online applications, high school recommendations, scoring on our Character Rubric, and the financial need of each applicant. We also conduct an in-person interview before we finalize our selections.
We have a set of requirements in place to instill a sense of responsibility and independence among our GLOW girls. The GLOW Foundation requires each woman to apply yearly, maintain high grades, actively participate in their community, contribute financially to her own education in some way, and demonstrate leadership qualities.
GLOW gives guidance and support through the ups and downs of university life. GLOW is intimately involved with our girls’ education and life training skills from networking to internships, from budgeting to side jobs.
