Through the BackPack-Excellence Scholarship for Women, the Swiss foundation intends to help women to obtain the leadership skills they need to advance in their careers.

The scholarship provides a transformational experience to talented and driven women who may have believed that an MBA program was out of reach due to limitations and disruptions in their professional paths. These could include family obligations, forced migration and financial constraints.
