  5. J’aimerais étudier en Mauritanie. Je suis Beninoise et je veux une bourse de Master pour étudier en Mauritanie. Comment faire? Quelle est la procédure à suivre et le formulaire?

  6. A good cooperation with member states of the African Union and commonwealth will definitely make this opportunity a great support to Africa Europe migration and the true integration of Africa.

  7. Greetings am Hussein kosombe from Malawi Africa am having much passionate to study faculty of pharamcy in Mauritius and i dont know what best steps that i can take for me to be successful admitted at MAURITUS UNIVERSITY and am having a humbly request from the authority of this schoolarship to guide accordingly thanks with great regards.

  8. The process waters down my willingness because the government officials down here will not lift a finger talk more of sending mine and others applications to you, and when they evern do, the scholarship must have been closed for that year and this I am sure. I think you should revisit the criteria. People should be able to submit their applications themselves instead of going through their government officials. Our international passports, birth certificates and other documents should server as a perfect record keeping of people your government have helped from different countries through the scholarship.

    • I totally agree with this. While going through the requirements, I noticed my interest gradually dropped. It’ll be of great help if the criteria is actually revisited.
