MA and PhD fellowships for African students

[Updated 17 August 2018.  New entries are marked with an asterisk.]

I’ve come across several great scholarship opportunities for African students who’d like to study or attend workshops abroad recently, and wanted to highlight them here.  They’re listed by country or region, and by university.

I include the link to the version of the scholarship offered when I found it, so some of the links may now be out of date.  I don’t plan to update all the links every year, so if you find an outdated link, just search for the current information on the scholarship.

  1. Thanks for sharing this info, Rachel. I’m hoping to get my South African mentee to the US for some additional learning opportunities — once he completes his tertiary diploma internship. #FirstThingsFirst
    Best for the New Year!


  2. this is very interesting initiative. i have been searching for masters and doctoral scholarships opportunities but haven’t been successful. the orientations here seems much better and offer chances to apply to many scholarship offers. jp
