The Ashinaga Africa Program may be an excellent opportunity for African orphans to study abroad and become part of the academic global family.
This scholarship started back in 2014. Its primary objective is to contribute to the Sub-Saharan Africa’s leading role in developing one of the youngest and most vibrant parts of the world.
This effort is channelled through education. The scholarship will cover tuition fees and accommodation as well as travel costs and associated fees. All interested candidates will have to participate in two rounds of recruitment.
Applicants may pick between English, Portuguese or/and French universities. On top of everything else, the candidates must be an orphan and under the age of 23 (or equal). The successful applicant would be committed to the region and make sure to return and bolster local development after they have completed their tuition process.
