In our normal tradition of providing excess value to our teeming followers, we have decided to package this list of Ph.D. scholarships for Zimbabweans specifically for Zimbabwean students who are eligible to pursue doctoral degree programs in the most prestigious universities across the world.

You see, having beautiful dreams but with no clear feasible means of achieving them can be very frustrating. Its so painful and disheartening how so many outstanding and promising scholars in various fields of study are limited in the pursuit of their career ambitions. Some have been cut low and almost out of getting on top of their careers because of constraining financial impediments.

So we believe these Ph.D. scholarships for Zimbabwean students are going to provide succor to most doctoral students from Zimbabwe to carry on with their study.

Please be aware that some of these PhD scholarships are fully-funded and covers virtually all expenses while some are partially funded but with handsome benefits too.

Kindly read through our list of ongoing PhD scholarships for Zimbabweans below and make your picks.
