IIE designed the program with Cisco Systems, and the collaboration represents a Global Development Aliiance relationship. Cisco contributed considerable time in helping coordinate its Networking Academies in the seven countries where female scholars were selected: Algeria, Bangladesh, Mongolia, Nepal, Morocco, Sri Lanka, and Tunisia. The women were selected from underserved populatins and had to demonstrate financial need, as well as a certain level of academic achievement. The scholarships provided tuition for women to study four Cisco "semesters" of the program to move toward becoming a Cisco Certified Network Associate The program was very successful and has been used as a model for new projects by IIE.
