AIG Scholarships For Africans, 2017/18 | University of Oxford, UK

To achieve our goal of being a catalyst for public sector transformation, Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG) will every year, for five years starting in 2017, fund five scholarships for outstanding West Africans from all backgrounds who are passionate about the public sector, to pursue the Master of Public Policy degree at the Blavatnik School of Government (BSG), University of Oxford. Upon graduation, AIG Scholars will be expected to return to their home country and apply their learning experience as change agents in their country’s public sector.

The Scholarships Programme is targeted at graduates between the ages of 25 and 35, some of whom may have work experience. The scholars will be exceptionally intelligent graduates who have excelled academically as well as in other areas of their lives.


  • The AIG Scholarships are full scholarships covering fees, accommodation and living expenses.
