Scholarship opportunities, both fully-funded and partially-funded are quite many in Africa. Whether you want to study in the East, West or South of the continent, there’s always a scholarship just perfect for you. Scholarships in Africa cut across undergraduate, masters, doctoral and postdoctoral levels. These scholarship opportunities could be region-based, country-based, needs-based, gender-based or discipline-based.

An example of a merit-based scholarship available to both local, regional and international students in Africa for undergraduate and postgraduate programs is the MasterCard Foundation scholarships. These fully-funded scholarships are available in certain universities in strategic countries on the continent. Overseas students can also study in Africa via Scholarships such as the Boren Awards for International Study. There are also scholarship opportunities like DAAD In-region scholarships sponsored by the Dutch government. These merit-based scholarships enable citizens of one country, such as South Africa, to undertake a postgraduate study in a specific field in a university in another African country, such as Ghana.
