Netflix Creative Equity Scholarship Fund for the SADC region 2022

The Netflix Creative Equity Scholarship Fund (CESF) is currently accepting applications for the academic year 2022/2023 sessions.

Netflix Creative Equity Scholarship

The CESF aims to facilitate the formal qualification and training of ambitious creatives from the SADC area by providing financial help in the form of full scholarships at partner higher educational institutions (HEI) in South Africa.

Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, has pledged $1 million to a Creative Equity Scholarship Fund (CESF) in Sub-Saharan Africa, which will help African creatives gain access to high-quality tertiary education in film and television-related disciplines at prestigious academic programs and institutions.

This is part of Netflix’s continuous efforts to invest in Africa’s creative industries and to provide more varied and fresh voices the opportunity to tell African stories.


The scholarship will cover tuition, housing, study materials, and living expenses at schools where recipients have been accepted to pursue a program of study in the television and film disciplines.
