MTN Solution Space Scholarships

The MTN Solution Space Scholarships were created to nurture a new generation of leaders that move beyond “business as usual” to envision, develop and test new models that will shape our future. The scholarships were created to support bold and visionary African mid-career professionals and entrepreneurs who are committed to local innovation and for whom a postgraduate qualification is an essential step in their journey of shaping the future of our continent.

The overarching mission of the MTN Scholarship programme is to build exceptional leadership capacity in the technology, media and telecom sector, by providing excellent educational and training opportunities to individual Africans with leadership potential, as well as creating over time a network of next generation TMT leaders across the continent.

If you’re passionate about Education, Health and Wellbeing, Smart Cities and Open Imagination, this scholarship is for you.

The scholarship programmes are offered at the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB).
