EBS in 2010, launched a major scholarship initiative in Southern Africa. They planned to manage the scholarship with the Canon Collins Educational & Legal Assistance Trust for individuals in many countries in Southern African, who find funding the Master of Business Administration studies impossible. The scholarship program was the largest in Africa and about 250 scholarships in 5 years. What made the scholarship program better was that the wife of former South African President Nelson Mandela, Graça Machel endorsed it. More than 50 scholars have graduated with their MBA. The scholarship does not receive new applications now.
