Universities South Africa administers a selection of scholarships schemes on behalf of governments, multi-lateral and private sector organisations, primarily for post-graduate study. Calls for applications are published on our website and are also channelled to Vice-Chancellors, from where they are then popularised through existing communication channels per institution.
Universities South Africa is a nominating agency for South Africa for the United Kingdom-based Commonwealth Scholarship Commission. Eligible South Africans can submit nominations on an annual basis. We assess applications on behalf of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, and nominate 50 candidates for consideration towards Master’s and Doctoral studies.
