Applications are currently being accepted for the Women for Africa Foundation Learn Africa Scholarship Programme.


– Must be a woman with nationality and residency in an African country.

– Must meet the specific requirements of the scholarship being applied for.
– Only one application per individual will be considered.

Technical and academic requirements:

– It is crucial to carefully review the information provided in the description of the desired studies, as well as on the university’s website (link provided for each scholarship), regarding academic prerequisites.
– The selected candidate must submit legalized, certified, and translated copies of their university degree, academic records, or any other necessary documentation to the host university. It is recommended to initiate the administrative process upon accepting the scholarship, as the procedures at the Embassy/Consulate and/or Ministries of Education or Foreign Affairs of the applicant’s country may be time-consuming.
– The beneficiary must also present a certificate from their university confirming their eligibility for the desired studies (master’s or Ph.D.).
– For online scholarships, applicants must have a properly equipped computer to attend online courses, considering aspects such as Internet connection, web browser, operating system, desktop applications, webcam, Zoom/Microsoft Teams applications, etc.

Language requirements:

– Prior to applying, ensure that you possess the necessary language skills. Proficiency in the language of instruction will always be required (B2 or C1 level depending on the host university). Language proficiency must be demonstrated through the presentation.

Should you be chosen, you will be sent an email notification and may also receive a phone call from the Women for Africa Foundation to personally inform you. You will then be asked to interact with the foundation’s team in the language of the scholarship you have sought.
