There are a number of scholarship places available at each Aspire for Equality event.
These places are open to trailblazing individuals working to change the world in charities and not-for-profits and those who are currently part of our pro bono mentoring program.
To be considered for a place, you need to complete the scholarship application below.
"I just wanted to thank you, thank you, thank you for the opportunity for a scholarship and the opportunity to attend such an incredible event. It really has been invaluable for me. Thanks to the mentoring and during the day and speaking to so many amazing women from so many backgrounds, I have been able to reconnect with the purpose driven, flamboyant person I used to be and for the first time in years, feel invigorated and excited for the future. I could go on and on! But in short, and I know you won’t mind my swearing, it was a f*****g revelation.”

Scholarships cover the event fee – you are responsible for scholar accommodations and travel expenses.
"Thank you for giving me this opportunity for a scholarship place. I am alive with the fire of belief in myself after two years of anxiety and self-doubt and cannot wait to get started on my bold actions. You have guided me from feeling lost and separated from my vision, to find my path of one day starting my own charity, Phoenix, which I will fly towards. It feels life-changing and I aspire to use it to make a difference to the lives of girls, women and LGBTI+ people as you do."

Please note – completing an application does not guarantee you a scholarship place, so do not book travel etc. until you are sure you have been awarded a place.
If interested in this scholarship opportunity, please complete the online application below. Once complete, you will receive an application confirmation. This is not a confirmation of being selected for a scholarship, only a confirmation that we have received your application.
Once received, the Aspire for Equality team will review your application. If you are successful, you will receive an official Aspire for Equality Scholar Acceptance Letter via email within one week of submitting your online application.
You must apply separately for each individual event you are interested in, regardless of whether you have applied for a past event. This allows the selection process to be fair to all applicants.
“I had such an exceptional experience at my first Aspire event. I wanted to send you a personal thank you for being so open and generous in all that you do. I have never experienced an event quite like yours anywhere! It was such a great experience.”
