Study Fund Foundation for South African Students
The Dutch universities welcome foreign students into their course programmes. To enable students from South Africa to use this opportunity, there is a specific fund that offers financial support: the Foundation Study Fund for South African Students (SSF).
The Foundation Study Fund for South African Students (SSF) is part of a greater organisation, the Zuid-Afrika Huis in Amsterdam, a private institution, that aims to maintain and promote the cultural ties between the Netherlands and South Africa
The SSF, established in 1885, is rooted in the history that firmly links South Africa with the Netherlands.
It affirmed affinity with South Africa throughout its process of transformation and it now wants to contribute towards the building of a democratic society by offering young, bright South Africans the opportunity to gain access to high-quality education and research in the Netherlands.
The SSF has its own new niche in the field of scholarships.
It provides bursaries to South African students who want to participate for a 3 to 6 months period in exchange programs between Dutch and South African universities or research institutions in the field of the Humanities, in order to obtain a Master degree or a Doctorate at their home university in South Africa.
The SSF also provides travel allowances for short term visits to the Netherlands to do research, attend academic courses, congresses and master classes.
Deadline: 31st January and May
