New WIIT Trust Scholarship Opportunity!
The WIIT Charitable Trust scholarship program is designed to provide financial assistance to further educational objectives of women who are interested in international development, international relations, international trade, international economics, or international business. Click here for details.
The mission of the WIIT Charitable Trust is to promote public knowledge and understanding of international trade and business, and to strengthen the role of women and others who have traditionally been on the "outside" of these fields. To accomplish this mission, the Trust focuses on long term projects having to do with trade education, academically-based research, and community outreach.
Recent Trust projects have ranged from an education project on international trade for junior and senior high school students to a polling report on U.S. voters' attitudes on international trade. Other activities planned by the Trust include trade education projects, seminars, and conferences, with noted experts on various subjects in international trade and business.
The Trust plans to expand its program focus to other mission-oriented projects. We are seeking to sponsor program specialists who wish to pursue project funding under the sponsorship of the Trust. Individuals are encouraged to propose additional Trust projects that support the Trust's mission statement.
WIIT/OWIT members who wish to pursue other foundation-funded opportunities, under the auspices of the Trust, are encouraged to contact us.
