Southern African Students - apply NOW for postgraduate funding

The University of Edinburgh with the Canon Collins Scholarship are currently inviting students from Southern Africa to apply for postgraduate study funding.

CAS is delighted to announce a new scholarship at the University of Edinburgh for the MSc in African Studies! The Canon Collins Trust and the University will co-fund a new postgraduate studentship from Southern Africa every year. Details from the Canon Collins Trust are below. 

Every year the Centre of African Studies builds on its amazing academic and alumni legacy in large part through the contacts and connections of our existing students and members. We hope you will circulate this opportunity to your friends and colleagues, and throughout your social and online networks. For interested applicants who don’t meet the nationality requirements, there are a number of other scholarship opportunities available on our website.
