Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET) Bursary South Africa 2021 – 2022

ABOUT THE COMPANY – CYRIL RAMAPHOSA FOUNDATION

Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET) Bursary South Africa | The Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation, previously known as the Shanduka Foundation, was founded by Cyril Ramaphosa and the Shanduka Group in 2004. However, in 2015, the Foundation underwent a name change and is currently known as the Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to create opportunities for students by way of education and enterprise development.

In 1996, Cyril Ramaphosa started assisting students from disadvantaged backgrounds with bursaries to attend university. The funding was earned from his public speaking engagements and in 2000, the Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET) was established. Today, the CRET is an independent non-profit organisation of the Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation.

ABOUT THE CRET BURSARY PROGRAMME – FIELDS COVERED

The Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET) is inviting students to apply for funding, via their bursary programme, for the 2022 academic year.

Bursaries will be awarded for studies in ANY field (provided that the studies are no longer than 5 years).

The CRET bursary aims to provide funding to students who may otherwise be overlooked by other bursary programmes – the programme considers the holistic needs of candidates, their potential, and student who with enough support, nurturing and mentoring, will become leaders of the future.

MORE ABOUT THE CRET BURSARY PROGRAMME – COVERAGE VALUE

The bursary coverage will be based on students needs and institution fees, but may include the following: tuition fees, prescribed books and other study materials, meals, accommodation and a living expense allowance (if motivated). The bursary will be capped at a certain amount, which will be discussed with students prior to acceptance of the Bursary Agreement.

The bursary will be awarded for 1 year of study and will be renewable based on certain criteria (including academic results, commitment to the programme, communication policies and other criteria to be discussed with successful recipients).

Bursary recipients are NOT required to work back/ pay back the bursary after graduation, however they will be expected to “pay it forward” by helping fellow members of their community.
