Tanzania is an East African country known for its vast wilderness areas. They include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino), and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain. Offshore lie the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arabic influences, and Mafia, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs.
The Tanzanian educational system is based on the 7-4-2-3 system: 7 years of primary school, followed by four years of secondary school leading to Ordinary Level (0-level) exams in nine subjects, followed by two more years leading to the Advanced Level (A-level) exams in nine subjects, including General Studies.
But, Education ends for many children after primary school: only three out of five Tanzanian adolescents, or 52 per cent of the eligible school population, are enrolled in lower-secondary education and fewer complete secondary education. Formal vocational training is unavailable to many of the children who want it.
In recent years, Education is a key component of the Government of Tanzania’s development agenda. The country has made significant gains in access and equity in primary education, with girls’ enrollment close to parity with boys’ at all primary education levels. Despite these successes, many challenges persist related to retention, completion, and transition to secondary education, as well as the quality of education, actual learning outcomes, and the relevance of skills that graduates bring to the economy.
Hence, the WSF TEAM have put together a list of scholarships available to Tanzanians who have succeeded in completing their secondary education to pursue a degree in any course of their choice in and outside Tanzania. These scholarships are for undergraduates, Masters and PhD Studies
