Bursary Fund

We aim to provide financial support for learners from disadvantaged communities to study at a tertiary institution


More about the fund

Lace Up For Change has created a bursary fund, the intention of which is to provide financial support to a learner from a disadvantaged community for studies at a tertiary institution. Seed funding of R10 000 was donated in 2021 by Prescient Investment Management. This has been reinvested into a Prescient Investment Account.

Who can apply

Eligible learners must be in Grade 7 at a primary school selected by Lace Up For Change. The bursary recipient will be selected through a composition/opstel competition. In the interest of the personal safety of a minor, the name of the bursary recipient will not be made public. Appropriate photographs and information will be published on social media platforms as well as on this site.

Economic, Social and Academic Support

The bursary recipient will be provided with economic, social and academic support (subject to terms and conditions) throughout high school (grade 8 – grade 12) by Lace Up For Change and our partners – so as to ensure success in achieving matric results that qualify for tertiary studies.

This is the start of a fund that we hope to grow to support more learners in future.

How can you assist?

Financial contributions towards the bursary fund are always welcome. Donations will be used to supplement the Tertiary study bursary and also to support the learner during their secondary school education. This will include uniform, tuition fees, extra mural activities.

Financial contributions can be made via debit order or EFT (see details below).
