The Harvard University in USA invites applications for the Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program open for 2018/2019 academic year. Fellows are selected because they have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields, and are expected to benefit from advanced training.

Fellowships are for a year of study in one of Harvard’s Professional Schools or Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, with tuition waivers provided by the School once fellows are admitted. General administrative funds for program management, stipends, and airfare for the fellow are provided by the Office of the President, and administered by the Center for African Studies, under the directorship of Professor John Mugane. Since the inception of the Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program, the Center for African Studies has awarded over 200 fellowships.

Worth of Award

The fellowship provides for payment of all tuition for the full period of enrollment at Harvard.
The fellowship also funds round-trip airfare between the fellow’s home and Boston. A monthly stipend is provided to fellows, with the exception of those enrolled in the Executive Education Programs, to cover the cost of housing and other living expenses. Housing is usually in university graduate dormitories. Please note that housing costs in the Boston/Cambridge area are extremely high, and the stipend only covers bare necessities.
The monthly stipend must also be used to pay other expenses such as medical and dental insurance, medicine, taxes, food, winter clothing, books and supplies. Fellows are held personally responsible for the payment of all bills other than tuition fees and airfare. Fellows should also be aware that their stipends will have a significant amount of taxes taken out before they receive the funds.

The HSAFP was conceived largely to provide educational enrichment for men and women in mid-career, that is, individuals in various occupations who have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields and leadership and are expected to benefit from advanced training.
Thus candidates who have just completed, or who have not yet completed, a first degree are not selected unless this degree has been pursued concurrently with, or subsequent to, experience in the workplace. Fellows usually range in age from 30 to 45 years. Fellows must be South African citizens.
Fellows submit their applications directly to the Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program at Harvard University. A committee of HSAFP alumni, Center staff and the CAS Faculty Director will interview the short-listed applicants in South Africa.
Successful candidates must then apply to and be admitted at the specific Harvard school where they intend to study.
Applicants should determine well in advance whether, if awarded a fellowship, they can be granted leave by their employers for Harvard’s academic year. They should generally plan to be in residence at Harvard from September until June. However, some programs require fellows to begin residence on July 1st. No candidate should accept an interview unless assured that such leave will be granted. The Center does not wish to assign fellowships to anyone who subsequently finds it impossible to use the opportunity.

How to Apply

Submit the application form to CARAT through the “Uploads” tab.
Submit transcripts from all post-secondary institutions you have attended. Transcripts must be submitted through the “Uploads” tab on CARAT. Transcripts must show the grades and course titles for all your post-secondary coursework. Copies of diplomas are NOT required.
Two letters of recommendation must be submitted through the “References” tab on CARAT.
Deadline: Applications close April 4, 2018

The Kent State University in the USA invites applications for the International Student Graduate Assistance for the 2018/2019 academic year. Many graduate programs offer fellowships or one of three types of graduate assistantships: administrative, teaching or research.

International students are allowed to work a maximum 20 hours/week on campus.
International students are not allowed to work off-campus without prior approval. Students should meet with an ISSS advisor in the Office of Global Education if they are interested doing this.
Most assistantships are awarded to doctoral students and some programs fund 100% of their graduate students while others do not.
It is important to contact the program directly to see how they structure their assistantships.
Students wishing to apply for any of these should contact either the chair or the graduate coordinator of their major department.

How to Apply

A general application is available at Financial Aid/Graduate Assistantships Page via their website. See link below.
