INISA Student Grant 2022

INISA Student Grant 2022

The “Initiative Southern Africa” (INISA) offers a grant for students from Universities and other tertiary education institutions in countries of the SADC region (Angola, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe) and invites applications.

The INISA Student Grant 2022 / Deadline: Sunday, 31 July 2022

The INISA grant covers 75% of tuition fees and related costs (e.g. books and other study material; residence fees etc.) for the academic year of 2022 up to a maximum amount of Euro 3000 (or the equivalent in local currency).

The applicant (m/f/d) should

- hold the nationality of one of the SADC countries;

- study full time at a University or other tertiary education institution in one of the SADC countries;

- be in the second or third year of his or her undergraduate studies, i.e. s/he has successfully completed at least one year of studies and has successfully re-registered for further courses in the next academic year. Please note: the INISA Student Grant is not applicable to postgraduate studies such as Honours, Masters or PhD programs.

The grant is open to students of all subjects, but particularly we encourage applications by science, engineering, economics and medical students. Should the grant be awarded to more than one student the maximum amount will be split equally. INISA requires the student to provide proof of tuition related expenses with a fees account record, as the grant amount covers a percentage of these expenses and needs to be calculated on that basis before any payment is possible. The grant will be paid directly into the stu-dent’s fees account at the University. INISA requires the student to provide two reports on the progress of his/her studies in the year s/he is awarded the grant.

Letter of Appreciation from Dorian Basson (INISA Stipendiat 2021)

thumbnail_Basson-IMG_5425

Dear INISA Bursars

It is an honour to be chosen for the INISA Student Grant for the 2021 academic year.

I completed my 2nd year of studies towards a Bachelor of Social Work qualification at the University of Cape Town successfully in 2021. My goal is to become a clinical social worker.

Due to the current Covid-19 epidemic, remote learning has no doubt presented many challenges for students and higher education. The many challenges this has presented to me personally include restricted access to university due to regulations, access to Wi-Fi, and escalating data costs. Remote learning requires discipline as a student and as student social workers we formed study groups to ensure that not one of us is left behind. Field practice was also challenging as I needed to follow Covid-19 regulations and yet connect to clients through personal protective equipment. I knew that to succeed academically amid an epidemic, I would need to maintain good mental health practices. Social work is a profession that involves human connection and so this has been the most challenging aspect to deal with during the last few months. However, I have been so encouraged by the hope, overwhelming support, and encouragement I have received from lecturers, placement agencies, and fellow peers. Though the academic year has been challenging, I remind myself that this too shall pass and that even though life as we know it may have changed, hope in the goodness of humanity remains.

Letter of Appreciation from Kemishi Nkgoeng (INISA Stiepndiat 2021)

036-pic-Nkgoeng--IMG-20210327-WA0003

I am honoured to be selected for the 2021 INISA Student Grant and I would like to express my gratitude for your continued support to students who need it most. This is going to have a massive impact on my family's life. I have prepared a letter explaining my academic experience during 2021 and how I have been handling everything since the beginning of the year.

I am a Quantitative Risk Management student studying at the North-West University Vaal Triangle campus. My academics have been largely affected by Covid and the effects it had on the economy. We transitioned over to online learning which was a new experience for everyone, from depending on the video and consulting with lectures over emails or Zoom calls was a new experience that posed some new problems I never thought I would ever face.

Depending heavily on an online platform for means to access your education in a country where electricity is not always reliable is a huge problem. I have had the power go out while in a class or during an online test. The several levels of lockdowns imposed by the government also lead to our academic calendar being delayed which meant everything was moving at a fast pace when we opened again. Furthermore, I use an unreliable phone which has a battery life of 5 minutes, this made things extremely difficult when wanting to speak to classmates or lectures.

Greetings from Georgina Morson (INISA Stipendiatin 2020)

Dear INISA,

my name is Georgina Morson, currently in my second year at the University of Malawi, Kamuzu College of nursing pursuing Bachelor of Science in nursing and midwifery. My 2019/2020 academic year had been so challenging to me. The one who sponsored my first year retired from office so he could not fund me anymore. I was very scared that my future has ended, but since the college is only strict with fees issues as we are about to start examinations I had hope that I will still learn for some days before they chase me. Thanks to INISA you have lighted my way by covering my 2020 academic year I will be forever grateful. Your help has come in good time when I needed it most.

Liebe Freundinnen und Freunde des südlichen Afrika, während in Europa in diesem Jahr die Politik diskutiert, mit welchen Maßnahmen sie drohenden Gefahren des Klimawandels gesellschaftspolitisch akzeptabel begegnen kann, sind die verheerenden Folgen in den Ländern des südlichen Afrika längst angekommen. Nach schweren Überschwemmungen vor allem in Mosambik, Zimbabwe und Malawi im Mai 2019 leiden die Menschen in der Region nun unter den Folgen extremer Dürre. In Namibia ist wohl rund ein Viertel der Bevölkerung auf Nahrungsmittelhilfe angewiesen.

Grußwort unserer INISA-Stipendiatin 2018 Yoliswa Masengemi

Grußwort unserer INISA-Stipendiatin 2018 Yoliswa Masengemi

At the time, I had no form of financial support, but I never let it hinder me from grasping the chance to better my family’s economic position and community at large. Having grown up in a financially unstable home, I was expected to limit my dreaming capacity and cage my plans due to circumstance. Starting a new independent life, in a new province, new school, and new environment with no financial assistance let alone the idea or thought of ever receiving assistance was terrifying I must say, all I did have was faith and determination that I was going to get through this year and that I am going to get my degree in 3 years’ time.

I proceeded with my year and studies with all the other students as if everything was alright, as if I was not receiving mails reminding me of overdue balances that kept the deadline dates in highlighted in dark red bold writing. Fear would strike here and there, thoughts of getting kicked out would torment me on the daily but I would overcome that fear with more applications and faith. Until the 18th of September when all hope was lost, when deadlines had passed, when I was getting myself packed up and ready to leave. That was when I was first in contact with Dr Sabine Blumstein receiving an email from the INISA Student grant subjected STUDENT GRANT – INTERVIEW.

My heart was pounding with joy, I felt a sudden relief like could clearly see the future again. My initial thought of shock was that this was a joke or a prank, I could not believe my eyes until I went through with the interview and was amazingly one of the 3 grand grant holders. Words can never describe the huge impact this assistance had in my life, I had reached rock bottom. I had started losing all hope and was on the verge of packing up and heading home with shattered dreams. Receiving the email on the 16th of September was life changing!! It felt like the 2nd chance life had given me.

Words cannot begin to describe my gratitude and utter appreciation towards INISA. I Am- and will forever be grateful for the INISA STUDENT GRANT, would never regret applying there.

Grußwort von INISA Stipendiat 2017 Keletso Moruane: "INISA SAVED MY LIFE"

Grußwort von INISA Stipendiat 2017 Keletso Moruane: "INISA SAVED MY LIFE"

I had sent countless emails and applications to every organization that I found on the internet. By this time I had registered more modules than I had during the first semester. The workload was almost unbearable and I had very little time to study as I was now working two jobs to cover my accommodation, and to top it all off I could not afford the needed study material for the 2nd semester. Every chance got, I would spend in the library. The struggle to maintain balance between working and studying led me to discontinue one of my modules.

Grußwort unserer INISA-Stipendiatin 2017 Lilly George Tushiya

Without INISA willing to support,students such as myself would be unable to pursue medical school.

Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and a ccademic challenges, but has also helped me realize the value of collage education. Your scholarship will help me earn credentialsin medical school,which requires special training and coursework .My passion for medicine is matched only by love for social health problems,my decision to study medical school comes from the heart.

Without a doubt this grant will will pray a key role in achieving my educational dreams. Because of your generosity, the financial burden placed on me to pursue my education will be reduced. That mean I can spend more time on my studies extra curricular activities and less time worrying about my finances.

Once again, thank you for the vote of confidence and INISA. I am commuted to my education and to the health care field and one step closer to becoming a doctor.Thanks to your continued generosity and INISA STUDENT GRANT 2017. Sincerely

Lily George

INISA-Mitglied Stefanie Baumert mit Fungai Manhanga in Bellville und INISA-Mitglied Tobias Lemmel mit Regina Matengo in Harare

Das INISA-Stipendium hat sich in den vergangenen 15 Jahren zu einem unverzichtbaren Bestandteil unserer Arbeit entwickelt. Die auch in diesem Jahr große Zahl an Bewerbungen erfordert von den ehrenamtlich arbeitenden Vorstandsmitgliedern jedes Jahr einen hohen Einsatz, da wir jedem Bewerber antworten und uns bemühen, die Auswahl innerhalb kurzer Zeit zu treffen. Nach einer Vorauswahl der schriftlichen Unterlagen (Lebenslauf und Motivationsschreiben) führen wir telefonische Interviews mit den überzeugendsten Bewerbern und ihren Referenzpersonen. Am schwersten ist die abschließende Entscheidung darüber, welche Bewerbung wir nicht berücksichtigen können. Auch in diesem Jahr hätten wir gerne mehr Stipendien vergeben.
