AET recognises the importance of supporting post-primary and secondary education in order to develop talented individuals who will then go on to benefit their country. Without a skilled, educated workforce, countries struggle to develop, and without qualifications, people struggle to get jobs to lead and drive development in their society.
AET supports further and higher education by providing a small number of grants and scholarships for African students to study in the UK, regionally in Africa or by distance learning from home countries.
• Support for UK university scholarships for undergraduate African students at University College London (UCL); and through a one year scholarship programme for South Sudanese students at UK universities. For information on UCL please see here
• Running a distance learning Public Administration and Management course in South Sudan with Fort Hare University, South Africa
• Provide grants to disadvantaged primary and secondary school children in Kenya, Swaziland, South Africa, South Sudan and Uganda, especially orphans and those who lost parents to AIDs.
