How access leads to success PDF Print E-mail

The Mentor Trust provides funds to give disadvantaged and deserving students access to the study of business skills. We believe that by giving financial assistance in the form of a bursary, we are adding a vital ingredient to a candidate's academic success.

A bursary is a non-repayable grant, not a loan. Bursary funds are intended to assist with a student's education related costs. They are granted on the basis of student's financial need, with consideration given to academic potential.

It is the responsibility of these students to progress from access to success.

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Mentor bursary at the Institute. We grant bursaries on an annual basis to students from all over Southern Africa. (Terms and conditions apply.)
