What is Financial Aid - Readmore PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Damaris Foping

globe_AfricaWhy don’t we see scholarships/ Financial Aid

for what they truly are, i.e. an opportunity to go abroad in order to acquire those unique intellectual and networking qualities that will make us an asset for this continent of ours.

                                      

 

 

 

WHERE WILL SOLUTIONS TO THE NUMEROUS PROBLEMS THAT PLAGUE AFRICA COME FROM?

Africa is literally loaded with issues. You name it, we have it.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where will the solution to our many problems come from?

 

 

From the international community? Rich nations? Do you really think that a foreign nation will set aside the interests of its people to care for ours? If roles were reversed, would you? Who will take care of our brothers and sisters who are dying by the millions each year from starvation, disease, war, etc.. ...?

 

While natural resources are an asset for nations who own them, history has proven that human resources, especially an educated youth who takes to heart the problems undermining their population, is the greatest asset of any nation.


Please consider this:

 

  • A child dies in Africa every 30-45 seconds from malaria,  90% of all malaria deaths in the world occur in Sub-Africa; more than ½ of the HIV-AIDS burden in the world rests solely on the shoulders of sub-Saharan Africa,
  • 315 million people – one out of two people in Sub Saharan Africa survive on less than one dollar per da; 
  • Children account for half of all civilian casualties in wars in Africa
  • 184 million people – 33% of the African population – suffer from malnutrition
  • In 2000, 300 million Africans did not have access to safe water

 

THIS IS NO BREAKING NEWS, THINGS HAVE BEEN THIS WAY FOR YEARS AND YEARS

 

Where will the solution to our many problems come from?

 

 

 

 

Dschol2

 

 

I guess my advice is this: If by the grace of God one day you find an open door to a country overseas, do not forget where you came from.

See scholarships for what they are in reality: an opportunity to go abroad to obtain those unique resources / skills that will one day allow you to help the continent of africa, our brothers, sisters and children.

 

 

 

There is no road map or easy way to achieve this, quite the contrary. But there is a saying we are all familiar with: ‘where there is a will there is a way.’

 

 

Believe me, if you succeed you will never regret it, NEVER

 

 

 

We are here to help African students in any way possible. In your quest please do not hesitate to contact H.A.S.'s staff with your question.

 

All the best,

Hello Eliab!
Using our search engine, you can look for scholarships that
fit your specific profile. Remember to make your search as broad as
possible. What this means is limiting only one or two criteria if your initial search does not yield many results. Here is the address of our search engine: www.helpforafricanstudents.org /.../
Once you locate one or more scholarships that suit your needs, feel
free to ask us for advice/support on the application steps (CV, letter
of motivation etc....)
Be sure you read this article over and over: helpforafricanstudents.org/... /...
Check out the following page if you are interested in studying abroad!
helpforafricanstudents.org/... /...
When you have a heart to help your country, government scholarships are a great way to go. In your application be convincing: why should they give the scholarship to you and not another student? are professionals in your field desperately needed in your country? if so why? can your country train such a professional? (If not, they are more likely to sponsor you abroad).
Mungu akubariki! ;-)

Is time for African to take up there own responsibility as a nation to help improve the life of our people ,that can only be done by having the human resources required for that.It can only be archived through education.There for your support is highly needed

Dear Suraj,
Many governmental/NG O scholarships target students looking to get PhD’s abroad, and universities around the world rely heavily on PhD students to carry out various research projects. As a consequence, research assistantship positions become available every day in universities across Europe, America, and Asia. It is important to note that many of these opportunities are never published over the internet, so the best way to go about it is to prepare a nice CV and cover letter and start visiting the websites of universities in your targeted field and country. Look for openings and collect the emails of faculty whose research interests coincide with yours. Then send them an email—many reply, you know, and if you have done great things research–wise in the past you can get lucky; what is more, there is little to no competition at times.
How do you find faculty more likely to hire? Those with NIH grant money are listed here: projectreporter.nih.gov/.../
Another option is our search engine: www.helpforafricanstudents.org /.../
Good luck!

Thank you so much H.A.S's staff for provided that information. I am a student at United State International University and I have a dream of helping my country to sustain itself economically because I am a business student. I have a humble question,

Will you consider offering financial help to ongoing students in Africa who do feel studying in Africa will still help?

Dear Albert,
We are delighted that you have found the information helpful!
Our organization does not itself fund scholarships; rather, we compile scholarships from across the internet/around the world for which African students are eligible. Some of these do sponsor African students in their home countries. Let us know if you have any additional questions!
Best wishes!

Good day Sir/Madame,
I do appreciate your works of charity. I pray that through your organization, the dreams of many will come true, and our continent will be a better place.
Sir/Madame,I have been called by God into the teaching ministry of the Word of God. I presently coordinate Bible studies in a number of local churches in my neighbourhood. By God's grace, I'm a writer of Christian Literature books e.g. "How to meditate on the Word of God", "From Sickness to Divine Health
", etc. It has been my dream to go abroad and perfect my skills and knowledge in the field of Theology, after which I can come back and serve my continent as a full time Minister of the Gospel.But the financial means to stay and study abroad are yet unclear. Sir/Madame, I need your support.
God bless you!

Hello Christian

thanks for your kind words. There are scholarships that cover all fields of studies: these are government/NGO funded ones. Go on the website of the Ghent university, they offer a lot of master scholarship to people from Africa; the deadline is around April 2013 but double check with them.
May the Good Lord go at your right hand :-)
