The Harvard South Africa Fellowship Programme (HSAFP) was established in 1979 to address the needs of South Africans who were denied access to advanced education by the apartheid system.
 
This programme was established, and is still intended, for mid-career professionals educationally disadvantaged by past laws and resource allocations in South Africa.

Individuals who have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields stand to benefit from advanced training, and, it is hoped, can use that advanced training to further South African political, social, and economic progress.

Fellowships are for up to one year of study in one of Harvard's Professional Schools or Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, with tuition provided by the school.

General administrative funds for programme management, stipends, and airfare for the fellows are provided by the Office of the President and administered by the Centre for African Studies.

To date, over 200 fellowships have been awarded to men and women with careers spanning education, law, public health, the arts and humanities, and a host of other professions and disciplines.

The application deadline is April 15, 2020. Interviews in Africa office will take place in mid-July 2020. Finalists till apply directly to the Harvard programme during September to December 2020 for the academic programme taking place from August 2021 to May 2022.

Fellowship eligible schools are the Harvard Business School; Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Science; Harvard Kennedy School of Government; Harvard Law School; and the Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health.
