How does the Sangobeg Scholarship Programme Work?

Candidates are selected by trusted partners in South Africa and their application is reviewed in the UK. Individuals admitted onto the scholarship programme are requested to contribute, where possible, to their community. This could be through their work, through a work placement, volunteer work or in family life. We want them to be giving something back, throughout their studies and beyond. This could be as little as a couple of hours each month helping at a local pre-school, caring for members of their family, mentoring a fellow student, or volunteering/working at a local NPO. They are encouraged to find something where their newly acquired skills would be useful, or where they can develop their own skills further to help with job prospects after studying.

What can Sangobeg Students study?

There is currently no restriction to the qualification or discipline we will consider supporting, provided the qualification is delivered by a recognised provider of Further or Higher Education.  We currently have students studying such diverse subjects as Accountancy, Civil Engineering, Primary Teaching and Project Management.
