Africa University, in its bid to make higher education accessible to youths in Africa, and being aware of the low income status of the average African family, offers funding to deserving students to assist with payment of their University fees. The University’s Financial Aid Committee is responsible for awarding this assistance. The assistance is awarded on the basis of merit, need and character and it falls into two categories: Financial Aid and Scholarships
Students must apply for scholarships through the Financial Aid Office. Different organizations, churches and individuals set up scholarships which are awarded to deserving applicants, who must also satisfy any special criteria that may be set by the benefactor.(e.g. it may be required that the recipient be of a specified gender or in a specified Faculty or from a specified country.)
This is normally meant for assistance with payment of tuition fees and it is available to students from second year onwards. The need of the student is assessed based on their application, supporting documents and information from any referees. The student’s academic performance as indicated by his/her C.G.P.A is also used to determine the level of assistance.
Financial assistance at Africa University is a transformative force that goes beyond individual
student support. It is a catalyst for positive change, fostering educational, social, and economic
development in Africa and contributing to the continent's emergence on the global stage.
The applicant has to support all claims pertaining to financial circumstances and family background with documentary evidence. (e.g. death certificates, pay slips, school fees invoices etc.)
