Empower refugee women!

About this award

The $5,000 Eyob G. Naizghi Scholarship Award will be awarded to a female refugee for leadership development through education and training. Whether her leadership was highlighted in a refugee camp or in Canada, or by mobilizing people anywhere in the world, this scholarship will support her future leadership aspirations in Canada.

This scholarship has been established by the MOSAIC Board of Directors in recognition of the outstanding leadership of Mr. Naizghi, Executive Director of MOSAIC from 2001-2018, and his dedicated service to the organization for more than 25 years.

I very much appreciate this project that supports the empowerment of refugee women through education and training.Eyob G. Naizghi
