Ruth First Educational Trust Scholarship

Ruth First Educational Trust Scholarship for Southern African Students at Durham University 2018/2019 – UK

The Ruth First Educational Trust is seeking applications for its Scholarship program to enable southern African students from historically disadvantaged backgrounds to undertake postgraduate study at the University of Durham.

Application Deadline: 15th March 2018

Offered annually? Yes

Eligible Countries: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Republic of South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

To be taken at (country): University of Durham, UK

About the Award: Scholarships make an important contribution towards social, educational and economic development in the region. In addition to their value to individuals they have wide developmental impact, within and beyond southern Africa.

Ruth First Scholars have played positive leadership roles in their communities and are chosen for their active commitment to good causes, as well as for their academic ability.

Many former Ruth First Scholars now hold important positions in the public and private sectors in southern Africa, and have become inspirational role models for young people.

Type: Taught Master’s Degree programmes

Eligibility: Applicants should:

  • hold a relevant honours degree of sufficient standard to be admitted to your chosen Master’s course (further conditions apply to the MBA programme), and
  • not hold a Master’s degree, nor have previously studied at a university outside southern Africa, and
  • show evidence of active involvement in and commitment to voluntary work for the benefit of causes such as rural or urban community development; young people or educational projects; charitable organizations; health or AIDS awareness projects; student welfare or guidance. If you have a paid job that involves working in such areas, you should show evidence of leadership and commitment beyond the requirements of the job.

The Trust aims to award the Scholarship to individuals who not only have the academic and personal qualities to enable them to complete and benefit from a postgraduate course, but who will also act as positive ambassadors for their home countries in Durham and put their enhanced knowledge and skills to good use for the benefit of the societies to which they return in Africa.
