Since 1981, the Margaret McNamara Memorial Fund (MMMF) has granted educational scholarships on a competitive basis to outstanding women from developing countries who require financial aid and are committed to working for women’s and children’s empowerment.
Two students from Universidad Austral have applied for and secured these scholarships. These women are María del Huerto Atanacio (pursuing a B.A. in Nursing), from the 2013-2014 Application Round, and Ángeles Detefano (pursuing a Ph.D. in Communications at IAE), from the 2014-2015 Application Round.
Individual educational scholarships award US$ 7,000.- for students to use during the 2015-2016 academic year.
Applications are submitted online at MMMF’s website during the periods designated for each program (US/Canada, South Africa, and Latin America).
