Africa Centre for Scholarship

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Stellenbosch University consolidates its support for the development of scholarship on the continent through its Africa Centre for Scholarship (ACS).


The ACS aims to contribute to the development of the African continent and its people by developing new and emerging scholars in Africa. It does this by connecting scholars globally and creating opportunities for research and Higher Education teaching and learning development.

The Centre works closely with the Centre for Collaboration in Africa (CCA) to identify partners and opportunities. It provides high-quality, affordable, competency-based education that enhances transdisciplinary pre-doctoral through to post-doctoral scholarship and career development.   This is achieved through its African Doctoral Academy (ADA)  Doctoral Schools focusing on research design and methodology and academic preparedness presented a number of times annually, since 2009. More recent programmes include its Joint Research Schools with African partners and an Emerging Scholars Initiative (ESI) targeted at doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers, early career researchers and supervisors in nine African countries.

The Centre is also home to the Stellenbosch University Unit for International Credentialing​.​
