About the Award: The Mandela Scholarship was established in 1973 to protest against the injustice of apartheid and raise the profile of Nelson Mandela’s struggle for freedom.

It can contribute to nation-building and reconciliation.” Applicants must evidence how they will embrace the values of Mandela and use their postgraduate degree to make a positive contribution towards their community and home country.
