Apply for Canon Collins Sol Plaatje Scholarships 2021. Canon Collins Trust in partnership with Sol Plaatje Educational Project seeks to support exceptional individuals who are committed to social justice in Southern Africa and for whom a postgraduate qualification is an essential tool in working to create an open and just society.

In 2015 the Trust revised its South African scholarship awards policy. We now offer scholarships only to those studying in three areas:

  • Justice, which includes Law, Economics, Politics and the Environment
  • Education: policy and practice
  • Humanities, which includes Literature, History, Anthropology and the Arts

In 2022, climate justice will be a priority. Climate Justice related scholarship applications may be in a science or applied science field as long as the application can demonstrate its relevance to climate justice related matters.

Applications for courses that are not within these areas (for example MBAs, medical sciences, sports sciences) will be rejected.


In 2021, the value of the scholarship package will range from R20,000 to R100,000 depending on student circumstances. It supports both full and part-time Masters and PhD level study at a South African university and will consider applications from those who wish to study by distance learning.

Canon Collins Trust also organizes an annual conference for current scholars and holds several smaller events throughout the year. Furthermore, scholarship holders are expected to participate in these activities and to become part of and contribute to the network.
