Get involved

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
  • Textbooks
  • Stationery
  • School trips
  • Sports equipment

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:

  • 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.
