Oxford University seeks applications from African students for the 2019 Standard Bank Derek Cooper Africa Scholarship funded by the Standard Bank of South Africa Limited.
Three full scholarships are available for applicants who are ordinarily resident in one of the following countries: Angola, Botswana, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, South Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia or Zimbabwe. Preference will be given to nationals of Angola, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa and South Sudan. You must also be applying to start any full-time, one-year taught master’s course within the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences, Social Sciences, or Humanities Divisions.
It is becoming clearer that Africa has a critical role to play in shaping the 21st Century. The continent is increasingly interacting with the rest of the world on its own terms. Through this commitment, Standard Bank aims to champion those African leaders who will actively build a future for Africa, led by Africans.
You will be considered automatically for these scholarships if:
Submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline for your course. Selection is expected to take place by the end of April 2019.
If you have not heard from them by the dates indicated in the scholarship information, then please assume that you have been unsuccessful. Due to the volume of applications they receive, they are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants individually or provide feedback.
