Applications are open for Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program 2021. The program was established and is still intended, for mid-career professionals educationally disadvantaged by past laws and resource allocations in South Africa. Today, Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program seeks to expand its reach to institutions and organizations across South Africa in a continued effort to draw the broadest possible range of candidates for the program.

Fellowships have been awarded to men and women with careers spanning education, law, public health, the arts and humanities, business and the private sector, and a host of other professions and disciplines. Through their presence in Harvard’s classrooms, seminars, research initiatives, and conferences, HSAFP fellows have introduced knowledge and perspectives to the Harvard campus, the significance of which goes well beyond numbers and publications. Upon their return to South Africa, many of the HSAFP fellows have gone on to play prominent roles in their nation and local communities while remaining engaged with the Harvard community in Cambridge, Africa, and beyond.


  • The fellowship provides for payment of all tuition for the full period of enrollment at Harvard.
  • The fellowship also funds round-trip airfare between the fellow’s city of residence and Boston.
  • A monthly stipend is provided to fellows, with the exception of those enrolled in the Executive Education Programs, to cover the cost of housing and other living expenses. Housing is usually in university graduate dormitories.


  • Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program is open to all South Africans who qualify.
  • Priority will be extended to mid-career applicants from historically marginalized or underrepresented groups, including applicants from rural areas outside urban centers.
  • Candidates who have just completed, or who have not yet completed, a first degree are not selected unless this degree is being pursued concurrently with, or subsequent to, experience in the workplace.
  • Fellows usually range from 30 to 45 years old.
  • Ideal candidates are those who seek to model ethical leadership, knowledge sharing, and serve as a resource to improve and transform their communities and South Africa.
  • Applicants who interest in the program is only in seeking an advanced degree or professional certification to advance their own career interests are not ideal candidates.
