6 New Scholarships for 2012

Home » Ruth First Scholarship » 6 New Scholarships for 2012

2011 has seen the Trust raise sufficient funds for 6 new scholarships ( 2 of these will be funded by the Rand Water Foundation, 1 by BDO South Africa, 1 by Ngikwazi Field Marketing, 1 by a family trust and 1 by debit orders received from trustees, Jeppe staff and friends of the Trust). Applications were invited from about 80 primary schools within reach of Jeppe and all candidates were put through a rigorous selection process.

“Firdous Hamid, Gugulethu Khoza, Lerato Makhathini, Dominique Meysel, Sasha-Lee Morare and Thirasha Waidyaratne are the second group of recipients of the Ruth First Memorial Trust Fund. We were delighted with the calibre of applicants for the scholarship,” says Headmistress, Dina Gonçalves,” and although the selection process was not easy, we believe that each of these six young ladies has attributes that may well have been evidenced in Ruth First at a similar age.”
