Canon Collins Trust seeks to support exceptional individuals who are committed to social justice in Southern Africa and for whom a postgraduate qualification is an essential tool in working to create an open and just society. In early 2015 the Trust revised its South African scholarship awards policy. For the next 3 years we will be offering scholarships only to those studying in three areas:
Justice, which includes Law, Economics, Politics and the Environment
Education: policy and practice
Humanities, which includes Literature, History, Anthropology and the Arts
