Education for Africa and Scholarships
Association for the Advancement of Africa, Inc. views the present state of education in Africa as lacking in innovation and lack of providing an appropriate curriculum that prepares its youth for the global market. Most of the education systems were set up during the colonial era and have overgrown their usefulness for the present needs of the youth in a globalized world. Almost 80% of graduates do not find employment and do not possess the needed skills needed by the labor market. There is indeed a great disconnect between the national curricular and the labor market. The youth find themselves receiving an education that is neither relevant nor beneficial.
As we endeavor to challenge national governments to provide a curriculum that meets the labor market skills, we are identifying and providing organizations across the globe that provide scholarships to African students. We view the present education challenge as an opportunity to agitate for change and initiative to help us ensure that our youth are better prepared to meet and manage the unique opportunities that our global partners are providing. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community and delivers the support they need, when they need it.
Through our Global Partners, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the lives of many of our youth and future leaders. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Association for the Advancement of Africa, Inc., and a source of much success.
WE know that trying to advance your studies and prepare for the present labor market can sometimes be minding boggling. We have tried to make it as easy for you as possible by providing resources that offer scholarships to African students, at all levels of education, from different parts of the world. Below is a list of partners that offer scholarships and grants annually. You will need to subscribe to their newsletter to receive a list of scholarships not necessarily given annually.
Open scholarships will be sent as soon as they are announced by the relevant institutions, usually once a week. While our national governments make steps to provide a relevant curriculum, please be proactive in managing your future.
If you have the resources to be part of this initiative, please get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand; the future of our Continent depends on it.
The list of links below also includes organizations that grant scholarships. The list is not exhaustive but it provides a starting point for your future aspirations in education and the future of Africa.
Please write us to let us know whenever you get a scholarship.
