The ICT4D Conference Committee is dedicated to ensuring diversity at our events and the ICT4D sector by offering a limited number of scholarships to potential speakers who might not otherwise be able to attend the 12th ICT4D Conference in Accra. These awards are primarily open to applicants from local NGOs, NFPs or social enterprises headquartered in low and low/middle income regions as defined by the World Bank.
Awards are made by the ICT4D Conference Consortium and are based on criteria including a demonstration of excellence in ICT4D and financial need. You may opt to apply for a scholarship in your application to speak. We particularly encourage applicants in the youth category to apply. You will be asked to write a short essay outlining why you require a scholarship. Closing date for scholarship applications is November 13, 2023. Applicants will be informed on the results from late November 2023.
