Student Sponsorship Programme Umfundaze Trust

The Student Sponsorship Programme (SSP), a non-profit trust, providing educational opportunities to talented South African learners from under-resourced homes to attend some of the best high schools in South Africa. With the generous contributions of institutional and individual donors, SSP gives five-year high school scholarships to academically distinguished Scholars from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. SSP Scholars are carefully selected following our competitive recruitment process that begins when they are in Grade 6, based on academic excellence, emotional intelligence, financial need and leadership potential. Successful candidates are then placed at our Partner Schools when they are in Grade 8.
