The purpose of AGCID’s Scholarship Program is to contribute to the formation of advanced human capital, through the participation of professionals in Master Degree programs imparted by accredited Chilean universities or higher education institutions, with a high level of excellence.

International scholarships and study opportunities open up possibilities for South African students who wish to pursue studies abroad, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Studying abroad is an excellent way to expand your horizons, experience new things, meet people from all over the world and get an international education.
