EARTH University Scholarship Opportunities

EARTH is an international University dedicated to training leaders for agriculture development.  Our program emphasizes a systems approach to agriculture and sustainable management of natural resources and we focus on developing entrepreneurial leadership skills and spirit in our graduates as well as a strong environmental and social commitment.

I wish to inform you that EARTH University has reaffirmed an annual commitment to keep enrolling between 10-20% of the student population from sub-Saharan Africa. This commitment has been announced as part of a new strategic plan that was recently approved by the Board of Directors.  In order to kick-start our commitment, we have accepted 12 students from 6 countries using own funding and we hope to double this number by next year. The fundraising team is working tirelessly to find alternative donors who will help to sustain this commitment as well as using funding generated from internal sources.

We therefore encourage volunteers to continue supporting qualified candidates to apply for these life-changing opportunities.  The application period opened on 1stAugust 2018 and will close on 30th November 2018. We call for new applications for qualified candidates from your countries to aspire for an undergraduate degree in agricultural science and sustainable natural resource management. We are interested in candidates who are leaders, possess vocation in agriculture, are committed to work with their communities, and have good grades in science subjects and mathematics at end of high school exams.
