..Georgetown University

More about this scholarship

The Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa (LAWA) Fellowship Program was founded in 1993 at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., in order to train women’s human rights lawyers from Africa who are committed to returning home to their countries in order to advance the status of women and girls in their own countries throughout their careers. Over 80 women’s human rights advocates from Botswana, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe have participated in the LAWA Program, and we hope to include Fellows from additional countries in the future.

The entire LAWA Fellowship Program is approximately 14 months long (from July of the first year through August of the following year), after which the LAWA Fellows return home to continue advocating for women’s rights in their own countries. The LAWA Program starts in July, when the Fellows attend the Georgetown Law Center’s Foundations of American Law and Legal Education course. From August through May, the LAWA Fellows earn a Master of Laws (LL.M.)degree at Georgetown with an emphasis on international women’s human rights and complete a major graduate research on a significant women’s rights issue in their home countries. After graduation, the LAWA Fellows then have an opportunity to engage in challenging work assignments for three months (June through August) at various public interest organizations to learn about different advocacy strategies to advance women’s human rights, before returning home to continue advancing women’s human rights in their own countries.

Candidates who are awarded a LAWA Fellowship must be prepared to cover the costs of all additional expenses (such as visas, travel, housing, utilities, food, clothing, health insurance, books, fees, etc.). Candidates must be able to demonstrate to the U.S. Embassy for visa purposes that they have the full amount of funds available to cover these expenses at the time of their visa application. This totals over U.S. $25,845. For the summer internship portion, students need to show $2,232 per month, for the 2 to 3 month internship period. These costs are significantly less if you can affirm that you are staying with family in the Washington, DC area.
Candidates are encouraged to apply for individual funding, or seek support from their employers. The LAWA Program does not have the capacity to assist with these efforts. Please refer to this for a sample budget from the last school year.
You must be a women’s human rights lawyer from Africa to be considered. Preference is given to those who are currently living and working in Africa, and who do not already have an advanced degree. Men who are committed to women’s human rights are strongly encouraged to apply.
As a requirement of participation in the LAWA Program, all applicants must commit to return home to their own countries upon completion of the Fellowship, and to use their best professional efforts to advance women’s human rights in their counties throughout their careers.
You must have strong English language skills both written and oral. Language problems have been the primary barrier to success for LAWA Fellows.
The program will require candidates to become profession in using computers for drafting papers and conducting research. Candidates are encouraged to learn basic computer skills before arrival in order to make this transition easier

The 2016 Conference of Minority Public Administrators (COMPA) National Conference Jackson, Mississippi– February 17 – 19, 2016

 Call for Proposals

 Moving Beyond Problem Identification to Solutions: A Clarion Call for Collective Action

The core of what we do as public administrators is driven by a public policy making process that begins with problem identification. Funding mechanisms have also been driven by problem identification.  As a result, a deficit-based model for addressing community problems has become the modus operandi. The larger the identified deficit, the more money allocated to address the problem.  The importance of problem identification as a mechanism for allocating both human and financial resources is not up for debate.  However, we have been stuck in deficit based thinking about communities, particularly communities of color. Deficit based thinking and approaches often emphasizes failure, helplessness, and low expectations for the families and communities. Additionally, deficit-based approaches often do not reflect social determinants that impact how people grow, live and work in communities.  A very wise elder once said “people don’t want you to tell them they are in the ditch—they already know that. What they want to hear about is how you are going to help them get out of the ditch.”


The 2016 COMPA theme is premised on asset-based thinking and utilizes a strength-based approach.  Asset-based thinking challenges our tendency to be preoccupied with problem identification and forces us to focus our attention finding solutions.  A strength-based approach intentionally seeks out what works as opposed to what isn’t working. The goal of the 2016 COMPA conference is to accentuate the symbiotic relationship between academics, practitioners, students and communities that is necessary for sustainable collective action in solving many pressing issues in marginalized communities.


The conference program committee is pleased to invite proposals to the conference theme from academics, practitioners and students.  The proposals should be related to the conference theme and sub-themes noted below:


Track 1: Social Equity and Fairness

Track 2: Public Policy& Management

Track 3:  Disparities (Healthcare, Housing, Education, Employment)

Track 4: Citizen Participation & Engagement

Track 5:  Community, Economic & Urban Development

Track 6:  Criminal Justice

Track 7: Public Budgeting & Finance

Track 8: Role of Nonprofits & Faith-based Organizations

Track 9: Addressing the Needs of Students

Track 10: General Professional Development Topics


The proposal should include the following information:

  • Proposal title
  • Abstract limited to 500 words or less
  • Presenter(s’) name, institutional affiliation, address, phone number, fax number, and email address.


Submission of Paper and Panel Proposals

The conference program committee welcomes proposals for high-quality conceptual papers, qualitative and quantitative empirical research papers, and policy- and practice-oriented papers. In addition to individual paper proposals, the committee encourages the submission of complete panels consisting of no more than three papers. Panel submissions should bring together complementary papers that address similar research questions or topics. Panel proposals should provide information on the overall theme of the panel and indicate how each of the proposed papers connects to the panel’s theme.

Proposals from individuals at all stages of their careers are welcome. Proposals and poster presentations by graduate students are particularly encouraged and will be evaluated separately by a young scholars’ program committee.

The deadline for submission of proposals is October 23, 2015. Proposals will be evaluated by the conference program committee and proposers will be notified of the committee’s decisions via email by November 13, 2015.
