[Updated 12 February 2019]

I maintain three lists of scholarships and grants for African academics: one for MA and PhD study in Anglophone countries, one for Francophone countries, and one for post-doctoral and research funding.  If you know of other scholarship resources I should add here, please let me know!

The following sites are also great resources for scholarships.  New entries are marked with an asterisk.

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.
