About the Afrikanet VSAT Academy Program

Program Overview

The AFRIKANET VSAT Academy Program offers grants for African undergraduate and post graduate students to pursue a VSAT certificate program at the GVF. Such international exchange is intended to better prepare African students who major or minor in the technological and electronic fields to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.

International experience is critically important in the educational and career development of African students, but it can also require a substantial financial investment. The AFRIKANET VSAT Academy Program broadens the student population that studies abroad by supporting undergraduates who might not otherwise participate due to financial constraints. The AFRIKANET VSAT Program aims to support students who are interested in the VSAT and Aerospatiale technology to improve their knowledge, get certified and be ready for the job market; home or abroad. The program seeks to assist students from a diverse range of public and private institutions from all over Africa.

This study program offered by AFRIKANET will be a special experience for every student who participates. Learning about the VSAT and Aerospatiale technology within the AFRIKANET Program exposes our students to alternate views, but also adds an enriching social and cultural experience. It also provides our students with the opportunity to finish this program with a deeper understanding of their place in the world, encouraging them to be a contributor, rather than a spectator in their community.

Award recipients are chosen by a competitive selection process and must use the award to defray eligible study costs.

This program is sponsored by the CEO of AFRIKANET, Mr. Casimir Berthier Fotso. AFRIKANET Afrikanet Oxford Consultech is a UK registered Company with headquarters in London.
