Canon Collins Sol Plaatje Scholarships 2024 to Study in South Africa
The Canon Collins Trust, in partnership with the Sol Plaatje Educational Project, is currently welcoming applications for the Canon Collins Sol Plaatje Scholarships 2024 to Study in South Africa for the year 2024. These scholarships are specifically designed for individuals applying for Masters and Ph.D. programs.
Funding, spanning a maximum of two years for the Masters Scholarship and three years for the Ph.D. scholarship will be granted through the collaboration of the Sol Plaatje Educational Project and Canon Collins Trust. The continuation of funding is contingent upon maintaining satisfactory progress and submitting academic reports.
Interdisciplinary courses and doctoral studies might occasionally challenge straightforward classification. Prospective applicants are encouraged to exercise their own discretion when determining whether to submit an application. However, it’s important to note that applications that unmistakably fall outside of these domains (such as MBAs, medical sciences, sports sciences, and applied sciences) will not be taken into consideration for an award.
For the year 2024, emphasis will be placed on climate justice. Scholarships associated with climate justice may encompass fields within the realm of science or applied science, provided that the application effectively showcases its pertinence to topics related to climate justice.
