The Scholarship Ambassador Programme

Finding the right scholarship and submitting a high quality, successful scholarship application is not an easy feat. This is why we launched the Africademics Scholarship Ambassador Programme which offers personal support for scholarship seekers and applicants. Our Ambassadors have completed an intensive 6-month training and most of them are either scholarship holders or scholarship alumni.

Our Ambassadors offer support, advise and mentorship to a group of selected applicants on a quarterly basis. They offer this service free of charge and on a voluntary basis as it is their way of giving back and lifting others as they rise. If you are interested in a scholarship consultation with one of our Ambassadors, keep an eye on our social media channels and subscribe to our email newsletter, WhatsApp group and Telegram channel and make sure you don’t miss the next call for applications!
