The Namibian government provides several scholarships to Namibians seeking to pursue their undergraduate education. The Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture (MoEAC) administers the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), which provides a variety of grants and loans to assist Namibia’s needy students with university fees. Eligibility for these scholarships is determined by the student’s household income as well as academic performance.
In addition, the MoEAC also offers merit-based bursaries for underprivileged but talented students attending public universities or registered private higher institutions in Namibia—specifically those who are unable to obtain financial aid from NSFAS due to insufficient household income. These merit-based bursaries are available for full-time/part-time degree studies in science, engineering, medicine or health sciences at an accredited institution of higher learning in Namibia.
Other scholarship opportunities available in Namibia include:
-The Scholarship Fund Of Churchhill International University which offers partial tuition waivers and discounts on textbooks for eligible nonresident international students.
-The Ford Foundation Fellowship Programs provides fellowships designed to increase diversity among college faculty members by supporting individuals who have demonstrated superior academic achievement through their research initiatives that address complex issues related to race/ethnicity, gender identity and sexual orientation amongst others.
-The Thoroughbyte Bursary Program aims at providing financial assistance to students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds who demonstrate leadership skills, academic excellence and promise career success upon completion of their studies.
No matter what your educational background is and where you hail from—Namibia has plenty of scholarships opportunity that can help you fund your college tuition fees while assisting you towards achieving a successful career path!
