Brown Girl woke scholarship program

Helping Students in Samoa reach a higher education and social change

Announcement: Support our Scholarship Program

Build Community and Build Your Career


Brown Girl Woke has raised WST $5000 in charitable donations from international sponsors to provide four hardship scholarships to undergraduate students pursuing any field of academic study at the National University of Samoa or University of the South Pacific. Continued sponsorship will be based on academic performance and conduct. Sponsored students will develop civic responsibility through attachment and involvement in BGW’s programs.

Today, more than around 20 percent of Samoans do live under the national poverty line. The causes of poverty in Samoa ultimately boil down to lack of access to education, youth unemployment and underemployment, gender inequity and threats to natural resources and farming land like natural disasters.

Contribute your skills, talents, and motivation to change the lives of people in your village or in a community across the country. Join the nearly 100 annually who make this commitment.

As a BGW member, you can make a tangible difference in people’s lives while earning invaluable professional experience.

Give Now to Change Tomorrow


Our Scholarship programs allow our BGW Club members to further their tertiary studies in which their skills and knowledge go towards the development of our community in which they provide much help and support through different programs and events we hold for youth.

As funds for our Employment programs allow our Club members and mentors to continue their work within the community and helping to create awareness and safe spaces for our youth in differents areas as Domestic and Sexual violence, Bullying, Physical and Mental Health, all of which they provide workshops and youth programs involving Music and Performing Arts, Reading, Writing, Spoken word and much more!
