Happy Africa Youth Day to all our followers and community members, and congratulations to the winners of our competition!

The theme of this year’s Africa Youth Day, declared by the African Union, is ‘Defining the Future Today: Youth-led Solutions for Building the Africa We Want’ – in other words, the perfect opportunity for Africademics to step up and make our contribution to building the Africa we want. To celebrate Africa Youth Day, as well as Africa Youth Month, our Africademics Scholarship Ambassadors decided to give away 15 free personal scholarship consultations to youth in and from Africa.

  • Adeline Tamambang Zie from Cameroon
  • Madeleine Orina from Kenya
  • Isaac Kojo Buabeng from Ghana
  • Lucy Wanjiru from Kenya
  • Muhammed Usman from Nigeria

  • Sorene Mekonen from Ethiopia
  • Gervais Muderhwa from the Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Phyllis Biney-Hayford from Ghana
