July 2018: Greatness starts small. It starts as potential – a glimpse of what’s possible, a vision for the future. Maybe it’s not clear, or maybe our youth don’t see it yet, but the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation does. They believe that there is no greater opportunity than an education because the things you know determine how you grow. A High School Scholarship is your opportunity to change your life so you can change the lives of others.

So this is a call to you, the young and audacious, to learn today so that you can teach tomorrow. The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation Scholarship applications close on 20th September 2018 for all grade 6 learners and all successful candidates will be notified within two months after the closing date.
