About The Program

MyScholarshipInfo seeks to support young academically talented African students from privileged and under-resourced backgrounds with a proven record of community engagement activities to apply for admissions and scholarships within and outside the African continent. By privileged and under-resourced, we mean students who can afford to pay for their education and those who cannot do so due to severe financial or economic problems.

Students who get accepted into the program will receive all the necessary support and guidance on which universities and colleges to apply to, present a robust application, and secure partial or fully-funded scholarships to study in selected universities.

DISCLAIMER: MyScholarshipInfo does not in any way guarantee anyone financial aid once admitted into our program; neither are we a scholarship-offering institution. We guide you through the application process and connect you to different scholarship opportunities within and outside the continent. Some are fully-funded (100%), while others are partial. We also cannot guarantee that you will receive a fully-funded or partial scholarship. It all depends on several factors. It is also imperative to note that higher institutions conduct their independent admission processes, and the decision to accept or reject applications rests solely on the institution. Some universities might provide students with offers of admission but might not offer any financial aid. Therefore, you mustn't request a scholarship when you genuinely do not need it.
