Ambassadors

Through our Scholarship Ambassador Programme we train volunteers from across Africa to become scholarship advisors and mentors. Ambassadors participate in a 4-month online course with virtual lectures, case studies and additional activities. Once they have successfully graduated, they offer personal support, advice and mentorship for scholarship seekers and applicants in and from Africa.
