Few networks of this kind exist. As of 2020, there are 44 African alumni — all
equipped with degrees from Cambridge, Oxford, and LSE — working as
entrepreneurs, educators, researchers, journalists, lawyers, economists and, most
importantly, working alongside each other towards a common goal: to shine a light
on their continent and accelerate its growth.
The Standard Bank Africa Chairman Scholarship is a prestigious scholarship
program that enables outstanding young people from across Africa to study at three
of the United Kingdom’s most reputable higher learning institutions: the University of
Oxford, the University of Cambridge, and the London School of Economics.
