ARIN is different from AfriNIC as most of the members are from two countries.

The university case would be covered under an existing policy.  You 
might still have the problem of how to define a non-profit 
organization.  As the ARIN community is more active that this one, it 
is easier to assess what the applicant is certifying.

I suggest getting some AfriNIC members to support your proposal as it 
may encourage the deployment of IPv6.
