Canon Collins Trust is inviting applications for its master’s scholarship for Africans at certain universities in the UK for the 2019/2020 academic session.

Canon Collins Trust believes that higher education is empowering for individuals and transformative for society. Southern Africa’s development depends on strong leadership in key fields, which is why they have supported over 3,000 individuals through their studies since 1981. Research and knowledge are crucial tools for addressing some of the most pressing issues in contemporary southern African society, therefore they focus their scholarship provision on enabling access to postgraduate and doctoral studies

Canon Collins Trust scholarship programmes are funded through a variety of means. Many are made possible by legacies and donations in memory, which have enabled us to fund some of the following programmes, as well as contributing towards the Trust’s existing projects. Other programmes are funded by partnerships with corporates and organizations.
