Determine learner’s eligibility

2. Have achieved a 65% or above aggregate in Grade 5
3. Demonstrate clear financial need
The Application Process
Parents/caregivers must attend our Application Day, bringing with them the appropriate documentation. This day usually takes place between February and March each year.
Registered learners will write an English and a Maths exam based on the Grade 5 curriculum. This day takes place after the Application day.
A select group of top-performers on the selection exam are invited for interviews at our offices and at our partner schools, after which scholarships are awarded to up to 50 learners per year.
