Women of the South Speak Out (WOSSO) Fellowship 2024

2024 WOSSO will offer fellowship to women’s rights advocates from the Global South (Africa, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Latin America and the Caribbean (LATAC), Asia and the Pacific).

Fellows will participate in activities as outlined in their advocacy plans, creating linkages from local to regional levels. An advocacy plan is a strategic document that outlines specific goals, objectives and actions to advocate for a particular cause or issue. It typically includes a description of the issues being addressed, target audiences, desired outcomes, strategies to achieve these outcomes, and a timeline of implementation. The fellowships will aim to equip advocates with the necessary skills, knowledge, and capacity to engage in effective advocacy for gender equality.


  • The fellowship includes a grant ranging from GBP 1000 to GBP 2000 paid in tranches against the advocacy plan and agreed milestones, as well as participation in at least one regional conference. Successful applicants will be required to submit a workplan and a budget for their advocacy plan.
  • Participation in global conferences is subject to the nature of the advocacy initiative, logistics and other considerations. Fellows will be expected to participate in general on-boarding for the programme; briefing and debriefing on events they participate in; and to contribute to peer linking and learning. Fellows will have the option of being involved in research being undertaken by WOSSO as part of their learning. It is hoped that Fellows will remain in the WOSSO network, after the completion of their fellowships, and be willing to mentor Fellows that come after them.
