Diverse International Women of Color’s mission is to inspire, encourage and promote opportunities for women of color to travel abroad, experience different cultures and broaden their horizons beyond the United States.

Diverse International Women of Color believes the lack of funds should not be an obstacle for a student to achieve their study abroad goal. Therefore, it is the vision of the DIWC to provide scholarships opportunities to women of color wishing to study abroad. DIWC wants to pay it forward and remind women of color that there is a way, an avenue, to take that leap of faith to go abroad. By studying abroad, students can define their personal goals, outcomes and potentially expand their knowledge of self.
