This is a unique opportunity for young leaders from anywhere on the African continent to further their education in South Africa. While completing postgraduate study in any field of your choice, our leadership development programme will empower you to solve some of Africa's most difficult challenges. You will begin a life-changing leadership journey, and find a community of people who share your passion for the positive transformation of Africa.
- If you are between the ages of 19 and 29, are a citizen of any African country, and have a first degree with above average academic results (70% or upper second), you are eligible to apply for the scholarship.
- We look for young Africans who have demonstrated the potential to embody our founding principles of reconciliation, education, entrepreneurship, and leadership. You must have already assumed leadership and made an impact on your campus or community.
All African countries.
