The University of Cape Town invites applications for award of a limited number of scholarships from African students, from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, with leadership potential, who intend to commence with their first year of registration for full-time Masters study by research. Applicants intending to register for Masters degrees by research in any discipline are invited to apply. The Scholarships will be granted on the basis of academic ability, financial need and leadership potential. Payment of this award will be processed after the applicant has been accepted for study by the relevant academic department and has registered for full-time study for which funding was applied at the University of Cape Town. No applications will be accepted and no scholarship awards will be made for masters by coursework, honours, or undergraduate studies in 2022.
