Need: Does anyone know of scholarship opportunities?

Hello fellow World Pulse'rs!

I am posting today because I have just received word that I have been offered entrance into a Masters Program for International Development and Communications, after submitting a research statement that focuses on looking at women in the developing world who are using social networks (such as World Pulse) to sharpen their leadership and communication skills and develop their voices. I will be asking the research question: "In communities where women are using social networking, are these same women also assuming greater positions of authority and leadership?"

As it is an expensive degree to obtain, I am currently doing my own research on scholarship and bursary opportunities, but also thought that it wise to reach out the World Pulse community to see if anyone knows of women-focused scholarships that I would be able to apply for in the immediate future?

Any assistance or insight would be so much appreciated. Thank you! :)

~ Jackie

P.S. If anyone is interested in reading the full research statement, I have attached it here.
