Margaret McNamara Educational Grants in South Africa 2025

The Margaret McNamara Educational Grants in South Africa are available to African women from developing and middle-income countries. These grants are awarded to those who plan to return to or stay in their home countries or other developing nations after completing their degrees, with the aim of improving the lives of women and children.

The MMEG mission is to assist women from developing countries who are pursuing their education with the aim of improving the lives of women and children in their countries. They are one of the few organizations who provide financial assistance to such women. In past years, grants of up to US$15,000 have been awarded in the US/Canada program, and US$7,000 in the Africa, Latin America and Trinity programs.
