We are looking for young women who have demonstrated leadership abilities through academics, service, international experience, or volunteer involvement to apply to Empower Peace’s Women2Women (W2W) International Leadership Program in Boston this summer from July 28 – August 6th, 2022.

Young women in Luxembourg, aged 15-19, have the exciting opportunity to apply this year for U.S. Embassy Luxembourg’s TWO scholarships to the W2W program, held this year at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston.

The U.S. Embassy Luxembourg scholarships cover international flights from Luxembourg, visa costs and full program fees including food, housing, transportation as well as travel health insurance (pending availability of funds).

Application Deadline: Monday, June 6th, 2022

The 10-day program has been specifically developed by Empower Peace to provide rising young female leaders, ages 15-19, with the skills needed to succeed in our global community. W2W builds a network of promising young women from around the globe, engages them in the issues that define their lives, and provides them with the tools, relationships and opportunities required to lead. It will include team-building activities; seminars and workshops with prominent leaders doing important work in government, media, business, science and technology, and non-profit; leadership development exercises and skills building and cultural activities.
