Welcome to your one-stop shop for all the information you need to apply to Global HERizon’s Call for Applications!

We believe in the power of women to change the world, and provide young women from rural Canada with the opportunity to receive a modest financial contribution to their academic or career ambitions (maximum $5000 CAD), along with expert mentorship support to help build bridges between local and global impact.

So how does someone qualify for this support?ideaMost importantly, you should have a great idea that needs some funding to get it off the ground! This can take the form of:

  • A scholarship to support your social justice-themed graduate degree
  • A bursary to fund an international volunteer opportunity or co-op placement
  • Seed funding for a social enterprise idea to create positive global change

ideas

With your great idea in hand, to qualify for this opportunity:

  1. You are a Canadian woman (in terms of gender: cis or female-identifying; in terms of status: citizen or permanent resident).
  2. You are 27 years of age or less as of December 31, 2019.
  3. You have grown up in rural Canada (required). ‘Rural’ in this case is broadly defined to mean a community of approximately 5000 people or less.
  4. You have a demonstrated commitment to creating positive social change in your community or the world through volunteer work, research or other social engagement.
  5. You are willing to engage actively in the mentorship relationship, provide regular updates on your work to Global HERizons, and are committed to ‘pay it forward’ by engaging and inspiring other young women to engage globally.
