International Women’s Day 2021
Closing date: 8 April 2021
21 Academy shall be awarding a scholarship to two applicants for this scheme as a positive effort to address ever-pressing issues relating to female participation in employment. The Academy is introducing this measure as statistics clearly show that women are more disadvantaged in the labour market, both in terms of the measure of participation and the breadth of representation. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has also had an adverse impact on female participation in the job market, where many have had to give up their work to address pressing domestic matters.
The aim of the 2 scholarships launched by 21 Academy on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2021 is to provide the necessary tools to females in employment seeking to enhance their career or wishing to return to work.
