Canon Collins Trust invites applications for Sol Plaatje Scholarships for Masters Study in South Africa in the 2022/23 academic session.
Canon Collins Trust in partnership with Sol Plaatje Educational Project seeks to support exceptional individuals who are committed to social justice in Southern Africa and for whom a postgraduate qualification is an essential tool in working to create an open and just society.
They now offer scholarships only to those studying in three areas:
- Justice, which includes Law, Economics, Politics and the Environment

- Humanities, which includes Literature, History, Anthropology and the Arts
Applications for courses that are not within these areas (for example MBAs, medical sciences, sports sciences, applied sciences) will be rejected.
