Get Involved, Change a Life
You have the chance to help South Africa’s next doctor, lawyer, or scientist reach his or her dreams. Sponsoring a Scholar is a five year commitment to fund a student’s secondary education at one of South Africa’s top schools.
Each scholarship covers:
- Tuition fees
- School uniforms
- School trips
- Sports equipment and uniforms
In addition, each Scholar is paired with a mentor – an adult advisor, friend, career advisor and role model to the Scholar.
Being a sponsor is a deeply rewarding and enriching experience. Sponsors receive:
- Semi-annual reports including:
- Academic reports on your Scholar
- Letter from your Scholar
- Progress reports and feedback
- Regular e-newsletters
The annual cost of sponsoring a Scholar is currently $5,000. Sponsorship is a five year commitment. You may also make an annual half ($2,500) or quarter ($1,250) contribution over five years towards a Scholar’s education, and we will match your partial contribution with another sponsor’s.
The cost of a Scholar’s education is based in Rand. Despite changes in the foreign exchange rate, we ask sponsors to make a commitment to a USD fixed amount for all five years.
If you are located in South Africa, please contact the Student Sponsorship Programme. They are a registered Section 18a organisation and donations are tax deductible to the extent permissible by law.
