Applications Open for Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program!

Deadline: 4 April 2018

Applications are open for Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program to address the needs of South Africans who were denied access to advanced education by the apartheid system.


  • The fellowship provides for payment of all tuition for the full period of enrollment at Harvard.
  • The fellowship also funds the round-trip airfare between the fellow’s home and Boston, as well as a monthly stipend.
  • Fellows typically elect to stay in University graduate dormitories. Please note that housing costs in the Boston/Cambridge area are extremely high, and the stipend only covers bare necessities.
  • The monthly stipend must also be used to pay for other expenses such as medical and dental insurance, medicines, taxes, food, winter clothing, books and supplies.
  • Fellows are held personally responsible for the payment of all bills other than tuition fees and airfare.
  • Please be advised that Harvard will require fellows to purchase American medical insurance. This insurance does not cover the range of services covered in South Africa.
  • Separate insurance must be purchased for dental coverage. Charges for non-covered expenses and prescription drugs are very high.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Fellows must be South African citizens.
  • The HSAFP was conceived largely to provide educational enrichment for men and women in mid-career, that is, individuals in various occupations who have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields and leadership and are expected to benefit from advanced training.
  • Thus candidates who have just completed, or who have not yet completed, a first degree are not selected unless this degree has been pursued concurrently with, or subsequent to, experience in the workplace.
  • Fellows usually range in age from 30 to 45 years.
