Entrepreneur Scholarships

About the scholarships 

Are you a female entrepreneur? Then you’ll know the barriers to success are higher compared to your male counterparts. You’ll know there’s less access to capital, networks and resources.

But CEW is helping change that. We are offering scholarships to help female entrepreneurs and women working in startups get ahead. We will fund a course of your choice that helps you build skills, progress your career and scale up your business.
