Students at SDA Bocconi are raising funds with the objective to offer a highly qualified woman from the Global south a scholarship including tuition and living expenses to take part in the next MPA cohort in Milan. Learn more about this fantastic project that Impactpool proudly supports!
The MPA Scholarship Fund is a student-led initiative that seizes the opportunity to create a long-lasting impact through the empowerment of women from the Global South involved in policymaking. The MPA Scholarship Fund is an initiative organized by the current MPA class, which seeks to equip a female leader of tomorrow from a developing country with the tools to work effectively in the public sector by offering a €50,000 scholarship to SDA Bocconi, covering all tuition and living costs to participate in the program.
"As part of my work in Morocco before coming to Bocconi, I worked closely with women who lacked support – financial or moral – from their own families to study or pursue their career goals, but who studied despite societal pressure or being told they couldn't succeed because they were women. I believe that this initiative will encourage determined and capable women to achieve their aspirations, to the great advantage of society as a whole," says Alina Urbanic, an MPA student actively involved in the initiative.
Supporting this initiative goes very well in line with Impactpool’s value proposition says Magnus Bucht, CEO at Impactpool. Impactpool is one of few global career sites having more women talents than male in our members list and we are often approached by organizations to support sourcing of women leaders. We are a young social enterprise, but we have already become a natural partner for international organizations seeking women leaders, continues Magnus.
