When the MHA lost one of its most valid and strongest voices, Ramon Casha, we set up a scholarship fund in his name to promote education. The key notion being that all those who take interest in their own education should have the ability to do so freely. Through this scholarship scheme, we wish to focus particularly on migrant women who are doubly ostracised, both by their status as migrants, and by their gender.

Aim of the Scholarship Scheme

The aim of the scholarship scheme is to 

  • Promote female education. 
  • Encourage female empowerment and agency.
  • Support disadvantaged individuals who wish to improve their job prospects.

Eligible participants

Migrant women can apply for this scholarship scheme if she has:

  • One of the following statuses: Asylum-seeker/applicant for international protection, Refugee, Subsidiary Protection, Temporary Humanitarian Protection (THP/N), Specific Residence Authorisation (SRA), Victim of Human Trafficking.
  • A clean police conduct.

Eligible courses

Course can be selected from any institution providing courses in Malta listed in the register available in the following URL:

https://ncfhe.gov.mt/en/register/Pages/register.aspx

All courses are eligible for consideration but priority will be given to areas leading to long-term career opportunities and/or those relating to entrepreneurship, management, leadership and motivational roles.     

Grant

The scholarship grant is disbursed as follows: 

  • Initially the student has to pay 20% of the course fees while the scholarship covers the remaining 80% (paid directly to the course provider.)
  • The student is reimbursed the initial 20% upon proof of completion of the course. 

NB: The scholarship grant cannot exceed €500 and cannot be used in conjunction with other funding sources for the same course.
