Africa’s leading scholarship linking organisation, World Wide Scholarships (WWS Africa), is expected to be in Malawi in the first week of May to search for top talent in arts and other fields.
The scholarship opportunities assist students and their families to fund their education using their talent.
WWS Africa Chief Executive Officer, Munya Maraire, said the scholarships have enabled students to get life-changing degrees in all fields while pursuing their passion in arts or academics.
Some of the notable students from Southern Africa assisted by WWS Africa this year include Zenobea Jewaskiewitz of South Africa, who has received over 20 scholarship offers in athletics for her to study in the United States (US) in January 2020.
Top South African Field Hockey player, Kayla De Waal, from Herschel Girls School, received 10 full scholarship offers to begin studies in the US in January 2020.
“It is important to us that we take the opportunities to the dreamer to bring the dream that much closer. We know there is so much talent in Malawi that is untapped and not exposed to opportunities.
“We are changing that and that is why we have now embarked on a country-to-country road-show exposing talent to the opportunities we represent worldwide and Malawi should benefit as well,” he said.
WWS Africa has been in operation for 17 years and has linked over 700 African students with scholarship opportunities all over the world in arts, sports and academics.
Currently, the firm is holding talent searches in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Interested parents can make reservations for a meeting with WWS Africa Malawi representative George Damson or send an email to malawi@ worldwidescholarships.com,” Maraire said.
