DETAILS | Canon Collins Sol Plaatje Scholarships

Interdisciplinary courses and doctoral studies can sometimes defy easy categorization. Applicants are asked to use their own judgment in evaluating whether to apply. However, applications that clearly do not fall within these fields (for example MBA, medical sciences, sports sciences and applied sciences) will not be considered for an award.

In 2023, climate justice will be a priority. Climate Justice-related scholarship applications may be in the field of science or applied science, as long as the application can demonstrate its relevance to issues related to climate justice.
