Funding + Scholarships
The Survey 54 Bursary Scheme
As part of the school’s commitment to increasing diversity and participation in research on Africa, thanks to our Partners at Survey 54 we are pleased to announce that our bursary scheme is open to prospective students at the School of Pan African Thought.
Survey 54 have committed £30,000 in financial provision for African talent and professionals from less advantaged backgrounds in West and East Africa, South America and Asia.
The financial support will remove any financial barriers and enable recipients to focus on their courses of study at the school. If you are one of the successful students, you will receive up to £3,000 upon commencement of any course in 2023.
“The team here at Survey 54 are hugely impressed with the mission at the School of Pan African Thought. We share in their vision for education and research that amplifies Africa and African voices. That is why we are proud to offer this opportunity and investment in the future change agents and leaders of our continent”

It enables us to build a global student body inclusive of the most underrepresented talent in Africa and the diaspora. We are grateful to Stephan & Samuel for believing in our work, and contributing to the growth of our school.”
