Across Africa, there are many talented and academically gifted girls who are unable to complete their schooling due to a variety of social, economic and/or cultural reasons. Key among these is a lack of financial support. In her lifetime Margaret Sanders was a keen supporter of girls’ education. Now, thanks to a generous endowment from her family and friends that is managed by AISA, and in cooperation with our full member schools, AISA is proud to offer the Margaret Sanders AISA Scholarship for Girls. This annual Scholarship may be offered to more than one student per year, funds permitting.
Participating schools commit to covering core tuition costs associated with the student’s education, year on year until graduation. The Margaret Sanders AISA Scholarship supports the school contribution by covering a full range of incidental expenses such as extracurricular activities, school camps and IT expenses.
Award maximum: US$2,000 per annum per student
Each Full Member AISA school is invited to identify and process applications from female students who are first country nationals residing in countries where the school is located. There is no age restriction for this scholarship but candidates will normally be secondary school students (Grade 9-12). Support for students commencing earlier than grade 9 will be considered under exceptional circumstances.
All applications must be received from a Full Member School. Individual students cannot apply to AISA directly for this scholarship. Click here to complete the nomination form
