WIRe Global Scholarship Fund

WIRe’s Global Scholarship Fund aligns with our mission to advance the contributions of women in research, both for themselves and the greater good of the industry–particularly in economically challenged or conflict markets. We’re thrilled to be partnering with the ESOMAR Foundation to support women in need around the globe.

We awarded our first scholarship in 2017 to Innocent Rwamba Nyaga in Kenya (see below for her story).  We’re now actively working to award a second scholarship in Cambodia and Unilever will once again be matching your donations, dollar for dollar, to support this program.

Support WIRe’s Global Scholarship Fund, by donating directly to our Cambodian scholarship program below. Your donation is tax deductible and truly makes a global impact. Thank you for supporting the next generation of Women In Research.

Kenyan Scholarship Recipient

Our 2017 scholarship award in Kenya helped to fund the education of an exceptional African female student, Innocent Rwamba Nyaga, to give her the chance at a rewarding career in market research. This scholarship serves to advance the voice of women in research as well as the voice of African women in the practice. You can read more about our recent Kenyan student recipient here.

Many thanks to those the companies and individuals listed below, who generously supported Innocent’s scholarship. Many thanks to the ESOMAR Foundation, the MSRA, and a generous matching commitment from Unilever, without whom this program would not be possible.

Thank you Donors!
