EGEP is a non-degree two-week residential program which will be held twice a year. The first program will be held from Jan. 5 to 18 in 2012 at Ewha under the theme of “Asian Feminisms and Transnational Activism.” The program will be consisted of 10 lectures and other kinds of activities such as international symposium and workshop, meeting and networking with women policy makers and scholars in Korea and study tours to Korean NGOs; all the sessions will be provided in English.
Among the 25 total participants of EGEP, women who are from the countries that receive aids from the Korean Official Development Assistance will be eligible for the full financial support which covers the airfare, accommodation fees, training fees, and two-week allowance.
“Ewha has been putting various efforts to nourish women’s talents around the world such as the Ewha Global Partnership Program for developing country women, and Ewha-KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency) Program for women government employee in Third World countries,” an official of the ACWS said. “These programs provided higher education and chances to study social policies, allowing Ewha to produce experts in relevant fields. However, programs for the field of citizen’s campaign were relatively lacked. That is why Ewha prepared EGEP to train experts in civil activities.”
Though the first EGEP’s main targets are women activists in Asian region, EGEP is expected to be provided to women in Africa and countries in the southern hemisphere also. Any women activist with minimum three years of working experience in NGOs, non-profit organizations, or civil society organizations are eligible to apply. Application is available on the ACWS Web site (http://home.ewha.ac.kr/~acws/) and should be submitted via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Oct. 23.
