The African Fellowship is intended to aid African students who wish to pursue high-quality Ph.D. courses at a South African university which can offer international-level training in anthropology, including archeology and biological anthropology. If students select any of the following universities – The University of Cape Town or the University of Witwatersrand – as one of their place of study, the chances to receive the African grant are increasing.

The annual Wadsworth African Fellowships is worth $17,500 and cover the living expenses, travel, student fees, tuition, research expenses, books and many other benefits while you are studying at the chosen university. Students can also renew the Fellowship for up to two additional years after you have completed successfully the previous year of study.

African students who completed his/her master’s degree and wishes to pursue a Ph.D. program in anthropology, archaeology, and biological anthropology. They also have to be a member of an underrepresented group in academic anthropology/archaeology.

It is mandatory that they have begun training for the doctoral degree at a South African university and demonstrate why they do not have the current necessary means to further their studies. Entrants are not eligible in case they have advanced beyond the first year of your doctoral studies.

Entrants must have a supervisor or a Host Sponsor, member of the South African University where they plan to pursue their training. The sponsor will assume responsibility for overseeing their training. The sponsor will supply a letter of reference for them. It is highly important that entrants consult the entire eligibility criteria list here before proceeding any further.
