Africa University Fund

Africa University Fund
AUF is a crowdfunding platform where university students in Africa can raise academic funds from donors all over the world.

Our Origin Story

Growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, I experience the difficulties of not being able to afford college tuition fees, many of my friends had the same unpleasant rejection. Luckily for me, I was able to come to the United States and I got a scholarship, but my friends were not that lucky, so are many young men and women all over Africa. Without financial aid, merit-based scholarship, loans, many students drop out or don't even endeavor to try applying to college because their parents will not be able to support them financially, and we want to change that.
