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 participate in our Africademics Scholarship Mentoring Programme! Selected participants will receive a free initial consultation to assess their scholarship needs, as well as personal support and mentorship by one of our Scholarship Ambassadors for a period of at least two months!

Applications will be open until 15 July 2022. We will offer up to 90 consultations in the current cycle and the winners will be informed via email – so please make sure you check your inbox regularly after the submission deadline.

NB: Please read the ‘Important to know’ section below before you apply for the programme!

How do I participate?

To apply for our Africademics Scholarship Mentoring Programme, 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 scholarship 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.

Selected participants will be contacted shortly after the submission deadline and the consultations will start in mid-august. In order to be eligible for the programme, applicants will be required to complete two short online workshops prior to starting the mentoring phase with their allocated Scholarship Ambassador.

All consultations will take place virtually, i.e. via email, video call, messenger, or other suitable means of communication. Africademics will facilitate 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 at least two months after your first consultation.

Important to know…

Please note that participation in our Scholarship Mentoring Programme does not guarantee you a scholarship. The purpose of the programme is to assist you in finding the right scholarship or fellowship, and 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 who offer their services for free and in their spare time. So please be considerate and respectful of the support they provide.

To learn more about our Ambassadors, please visit our Ambassador page. Should you have any questions about the programme, please feel free to contact us at

We look forward to receiving your applications!
