By Lena Gronbach

Are you a student, graduate or young scholar from an African country? Do you need help finding the right scholarship for you? Or are you busy with a scholarship application and need advise on how to prepare and submit your application documents? Then sign up now and win a free consultation, as well as personal support and mentorship for a period of two months from one of our Ambassadors!

Applications will be open until 23 January 2022. We will offer a total of 20 consultations in the current cycle and the winners will be informed via email on 26 January. Consultations will be offered on a quarterly basis throughout 2022. To learn more about our Ambassadors, visit our Ambassador page!

How do I participate?

To participate in our competition, simply apply via this online form. You will be asked to provide your contact details, as well as additional information about your educational background and your funding needs and preferences. This will help us select the winners and pair you up with the Ambassador who will best be able to assist you.

The 20 lucky winners will be announced on 26 January 2022 and the consultations will start on 01 February. All consultations will take place virtually, i.e. via email, video call, messenger, or other suitable means of communication. Africademics will facilite the initial contact with your Ambassador who will then schedule a call or email consultation with you. Your Ambassador will be there to advise and support you for a period of two months after your first consultation.

Important to know…

Please note that a consultation with an Africademics Ambassador does not guarantee you a scholarship. The purpose of the consultation is to assist you in finding the right scholarship or fellowship, or to offer support and feedback on your scholarship application.

Please also keep in mind that Africademics does not award scholarships or funding – our aim is to offer support and information for scholarship seekers and applicants. Our Ambassadors are volunteers, not professional consultants, who offer their services for free and in their spare time. So please be considerate and respectful of the support they provide.

Should you have any questions about the competition, please feel free to contact us at

We look forward to receiving your applications!
