Find University Scholarships and Student Aid in Africa

Wondering how to get a college scholarship for your false studies in Africa? We provide an extensive list of scholarship opportunities for universities in Africa, including the best national and international scholarships, fellowships, college and university grants, free scholarships, federal funding, and other forms of student financial aid.

You can apply for university scholarships in Africa including funding for high school seniors, financial aid for college students, graduate school scholarships, postgraduate scholarships, and more, all available in our extensive scholarship database.

Find the right scholarship in Africa, for a wide variety of academic degrees, including business and management scholarships, engineering scholarships, law school or medical school scholarships, as well as sports, arts, or music scholarships to help pay for your studies abroad.

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.
