Beware of Scholarship Scams

CW4WAfghan is aware of several recent scams advertising what look like international scholarship and education opportunities for Afghan nationals (for an example see the image below). Unfortunately, many of these are fraudulent attempts to steal personal data from those who submit an application. To anyone looking for scholarship opportunities abroad: always verify the authenticity of any links and do not enter personal information into forms without confirming their source.

Resources on how to protect your digital safety can be found here, and are available in English, Dari and Pashto.

CW4WAfghan does not currently administer any scholarship opportunities, and is not involved with the selection process of those opportunities we do verify to be legitimate and share through our media channels. 

If you are looking for distance education resources, CW4WAfghan operates a Technology for Education program which makes learning resources widely accessible through our Darakt-e Danesh Digital Library. Please visit the site for a wide range of freely available materials in English and multiple Afghan languages.
