The Solomon Mahlangu Scholarship Fund (SMSF) was established to provide financial support to youth to enable them to pursue quality education in an institution of higher learning with youth in rural areas as primary target.
The scholarship was established in honour of Solomon Kalushi Mahlangu who at the age of 23, was executed under the apartheid laws after being wrongfully accused of murder and terrorism.
We award scholarships to students and professionals from a number of countries to study in Flanders as well as travel grants to Flemish/European students to do fieldwork/internships in one of the 31 scholarship countries in Africa, Asia or Latin America.
We only provide scholarships for the full duration of the master programme. It is not possible to apply for a partial scholarship.
