2024 Margaret McNamara Educational Grants For Women, USA


Margaret McNamara Educational Grants Scholarships are awarded to women from developing and middle-income countries who, upon obtainment of their degree, intend to work in, or with, a developing country to improve the lives of women and/or children.

We encourage Margaret McNamara Educational Grants recipients to inform other students about our grant, and to network with other grantees.
