UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS IN  AFRICA

Individuals with passion for certain subjects could take more significant steps by obtaining post-secondary education. Bright Future recognizes that some of the brilliant students are not able to attend university due to their financial conditions. In order to facilitate the situation, the organization offers full or partial scholarships to individuals who are interested and talented in the fields related to management, law, media, education, and public policy.

Although preference is given to students at graduate-level studies, undergraduate students are also strongly encouraged to apply. A valid admission offer from one of the top universities in Africa, exceptional success in past studies, evidence of passion for the academic program, and financial need are among the criteria required for the applicants to this program.

SHORT TERM APPLIED PROGRAMS
