Tanzania Scholarship Program

 

Education past the 6th grade is not free in Tanzania. Many students who complete elementary school do not have the opportunity to go to high school or even dream about going to college because it is too expensive. Southwood partners with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania to support students at Christian High Schools and local colleges/universities.

As a sponsor you will receive letters and a picture of your student each year. We also ask our sponsors to send letters and pictures to their students. We will provide helpful information, letter writing tips and will assist in the mailings.

Scholarship Donation Options:

  • $740 for a High School Scholarship
  • $1,000 for a College Scholarship
  • $10 / Textbook (Optional)

We have sponsors that give at different amounts and we are always grateful for any donation. You can give a one-time gift or make ongoing monthly payments.

The Tanzania school calendar runs January—December. However, we have over 100 students on a waiting list seeking a scholarship, so you can start with a student at any time.

Thank you for your interest in the Tanzania Scholarship Program. This is a life changing gift for a student in Tanzania.
