Call for Applications: MANDELA RHODES SCHOLARSHIP 2020


 

Deadline: 16 April 2020
Open to: any African country citizens whose age range from 19 to 29
 

The Mandela Rhodes Foundation is one of Nelson Mandela’s three official legacy organisations, founded in 2003 in partnership with the Rhodes Trust. Our mission is to build exceptional leadership capacity in Africa. We find, fund, and empower young Africans who aspire towards the kind of leadership Mr. Mandela embodied: leaders who can bridge historic divides and who use their talents for the betterment of their societies and our continent.

The Mandela Rhodes Scholarship offers comprehensive funding for the core costs associated with your studies.

It covers tuition for a one-year Honours degree or a two-year Masters degree in any field at a recognised South African institution of higher education. This includes tuition and registration fees, allowances for study materials, research, and medical aid, accommodation and meals, and economy class travel to and from your home country to your South African university at the beginning and end of your degree. You will also receive a personal allowance.

If you are between the ages of 19 and 29, are a citizen of any African country, and have a first degree with above average academic results (70% and above), you are eligible to apply for the scholarship.

We look for young Africans who have demonstrated the potential to embody our founding principles of reconciliation, education, entrepreneurship, and leadership. You must have already assumed leadership and made an impact on your campus or community.

To benefit from our programme you must be curious about doing the personal, internal work of leadership. This means a commitment to developing self-awareness by engaging with difficult parts of yourself, an openness to learning from the diversity and differences in your cohort, and a willingness to explore and embrace complexity within yourself, others, and the systems around you.
