SOUTH AFRICA SCHOLARSHIPS
PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS
- AET has a small grant program that offers South Africa Scholarships to assist in the payment of school fees for disadvantaged children. It also has a long-standing link with the University of Fort Hare to assist in the development of pan African countries, particularly Somalia and Southern Sudan.
The Kenneth Kirkwood Fund
- Kenneth Kirkwood was the first Professor of Race Relations at Oxford and Chairman of AET from 1987-1994. His memorial fund, Kenneth Kirkwood Fund, provides South Africa Scholarships to support for students from Southern Africa who encounter financial problems. First priority for this grant goes to students at St Antony’s College. So far, two students at St Antony’s have been assisted.
- Situated on the southern tip of the continent, South Africa is one of Africa’s super-powers and is the starting point for Room to Read in Africa. Room to Read selected South Africa as their first African country whom they offer South Africa Scholarships. This decision was the culmination of nearly a year of research and strategizing about potential expansion onto the second continent. In addition to the rural discrepancy there are other important educational issues facing South Africa, including educational opportunities for girls – although there is parity in enrollment rates between both genders, there is a growing need to keep girls in school.
