The role of Advance Africa Newsletter in developing future leaders and scholars in Africa can not be doubted.
The newsletter provides a wide range of helpful subjects which most of my young professionals are yearning for.
As a result I have tried to register as many people as possible with the newsletter.
My own experience is awesome. Through the opportunities announced here and the application tips therein, I secured my first scholarship with DAAD to undertake a master course in Germany.
The experience was fantastic, just beyond my imagination. Upon my return, a continued network with Advance Africa newsletter granted me another scholarship (FIRS) to study PhD at the University of Leeds.
I therefore encourage people to read the newsletter as frequent as possible and commit to taking a step.
Note that a good complete application is all you need to win a scholarship since most people cannot keep up with the application demands despite being qualified.
You might just find out that you are the only one submitting a complete application for a given scholarship.
So stay strong, persevere and get it! I guarantee that.
