Deadline: 31 August 2017
The Initiative Southern Africa (INISA) is currently inviting applicants for its Student Grant 2017 that will offer a grant for students from Universities and other tertiary education institutions in countries of the SADC region (Angola, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe).
INISA is a German Non-Governmental Organisation founded in 1995. INISA’s mission is to inform the German public on political, economical, social and cultural developments in Southern Africa to create interest, deepen understanding and enhance contacts and exchange between Germany and Southern Africa.
The INISA grant covers 75% of tuition fees and related costs (e.g. books and other study material; residence fees etc.) for the academic year of 2017 up to a maximum amount of Euro 3000 (or the equivalent in local currency).
- The grant is open to students of all subjects, but particularly encourages applications by science, engineering, economics and medical students. Should the grant be awarded to more than one student the maximum amount will be split equally.
- INISA requires the student to provide proof of tuition related expenses with a fees account record, as the grant amount covers a percentage of these expenses and needs to be calculated on that basis before any payment is possible.
- The grant will be paid directly into the student’s fees account at the University. INISA requires the student to provide two reports on the progress of his/her studies in the year s/he is awarded the grant.
