I have two passions. Developing Africa and developing young people. I wish to develop Africa so that it may take it’s place on the world stage. This would best be achieved through strengthen relations between Africa and the global north. This would enable cross-cultural exchange and learning of best practice. To achieve this we need to develop Africa’s youth. Encourage them to study, encourage them to learn, to lead and to solve problems. Encourage them to travel the world so that they can learn from other nations.Adyn Parrott, Africademics University Ambassador
The Africademics University Ambassador Programme
The Africademics University Ambassador Programme aims to build a network of passionate and dedicated students, graduates, early career researchers and university staff at universities across Africa.
Our Ambassadors identify scholarship and funding opportunities at their university or in their country and share scholarships and other educational opportunities with their fellow students.
Ambassadors are also encouraged to implement additional projects and initiatives at the local level aimed at promoting access to scholarships, funding and career opportunities for students, graduates and young professionals in and from Africa.
Are you a student or recent graduate from an African university or research institution? Or are you a PhD student, postdoc, researcher or lecturer at an African university? Are you passionate about creating and sharing educational opportunities and scholarships?
