GLOBAL Ashinaga Africa Initiative 2018 – International Scholarships
February 26, 2018 International Scholarships

Programme outline

The Ashinaga Africa Initiative began in 2014. Its mission is to contribute to Sub-Saharan Africa’s expanding role in global development through increasing access to higher education abroad. They support orphaned students who are committed to returning home and initiating change, by providing access to full financial support to study at a university abroad (equivalent to an undergraduate degree). Ashinaga support covers tuition, accommodation, travel costs, and other necessary fees.

Degree level



Application deadline is 25 February 2018.

Application is open to those who:

  • – Be an orphan, having lost one or both parents
  • – Be 23 or younger, having been born after October 1, 1995
  • – Have graduated high school within the past two years
  • – Be committed to returning to Sub-Saharan Africa once they have finished their studies abroad


This will be decided during the study camp for students selected for this program. It will be decided together with the student, but the final decision ultimately lies with Ashinaga. It will depend on numerous criteria, including visa requirements, language requirements, academic grades, and the availability of the student’s desired course of study.
