  42. I applied for the scholarship some weeks back and was expecting to be chosen. Unfortunately, my devices were stolen and have been unable to access my mails. I just got a new device and suprisingly while checking my mails I found a mail (dated 8/11/2021) that I have been chosen to be part of the 1000women. I feel so bad for this but it’s beyond me. Is there anyway I can still be part of the program, it’s a skill have been longing to get to complement my love for technology. Thanks in anticipation
