Scholarship Details:

Since the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan’s capital city on August 15, 2021, there have been numerous instances of human rights abuses, especially against women and girls. Despite initial promises to uphold women’s rights under Sharia law, including the right to work and to receive an education, the Taliban has consistently marginalized and excluded women and girls from participating in public life. On December 21, 2022, the Taliban government, through the higher education minister, announced that university education is banned for women in Afghanistan, compounding an already appalling situation where girls had been excluded from attending secondary schools.

“Education is education. We should learn everything and then choose which path to follow. Education is neither Eastern nor Western, it is human.” – Malala Yousafzai

The University of Dundee, located in Scotland (United Kingdom), is one of the world’s top 250 universities and has the mission to transform lives through the creation, sharing, and application of knowledge. The scholarship it offers, therefore aims to provide financial support for women from Afghanistan, to help cover the costs of tuition, fees, and living expenses while pursuing higher education in the UK, thereby providing the necessary environment for Afghan women to gain skills and knowledge that can be beneficial in achieving their goals.
