MA and PhD fellowships for African students

Here’s my list of all the MA and PhD fellowships for African students that I’ve come across.  They’re listed by region.  All the links have been updated as of February 2021.  New links since the last update are marked with an asterisk.

I’m working on turning this into a searchable database in partnership with Africademics.  Stay tuned for updates!

I’ll note here that I get a lot of requests from people asking me to help them get a scholarship.  I’m not affiliated with any of the universities or scholarship providers listed here.  I can’t provide individualized recommendations for scholarships.  I can review a limited number of social science scholarship applications as my schedule permits.
