Spread the love

The Mozida Foundation is happy to tell you about a great opportunity! They’re offering scholarships for students from African countries who want to do a master’s degree in Bolivia. This is a chance for you to learn and experience a new culture.



The first category comprises African students with excellent academic backgrounds, verifiable from their graduating class of degrees, academic transcripts and excellent commendations from previous tutors, lecturers and university staff.


The second comprises African students who, for one reason or another (e.g hardship), may have graduated with a lower-class degree but have gone all the way to become agents of change in their respective communities. Examples of hardships we will take into consideration include but are not limited to, childbearing, loss of a parent or guardian, victimization by national unrest, war, etc. Students in this category should have pictorial or documentary evidence to back up thier claims of communal impartation.

We are aware of the fact that some individuals may have impacted their communities without having certificates or documents to prove it. In this case, kindly create a new word document or pdf (name this document “Evidence of Communal Impact”) with a short write up including BRIEF description of your communal impact. Kindly include all social media links, URL links, pictures, videos and or any other evidence you have to support your claims. Note that this “Evidence of Communal Impact” will be different from your personal statement. .
