Internationally acclaimed DJ and music producer, Cuppy, has announced the creation of a scholarship fund to support African graduate students pursuing their studies at the University of Oxford.

“The Cuppy Africa Oxford Scholars Fund aims to support future leaders from the continent by enabling them to access the necessary skills, resources, and networks to maximize their impact across Africa and beyond,” says Oxford University. “It will support African graduate students at the University to meet unexpected and urgent financial needs and undertake activities that will ensure the pursuit of excellence in their graduate studies.”

In a statement, Cuppy expressed her pride in launching the Cuppy Africa Oxford Scholars Fund to empower future generations of African graduate students at Oxford University.

Having just graduated with an MSc degree in African Studies myself, I saw first-hand the variances in university life experiences for students originating from my continent, Africa. The fundamental role that the Cuppy Fund will play is to narrow resource gaps for those who need it the most so they can fully commit to pursuing the education they deserve. The opportunity to study at Oxford is an accomplishment but one fully realised when you are able to complete your course.
