The following opportunities are now open for application:

     Fellowship Application (1st Year) Scholarship Application

The Scholarship

The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation exists to promote social and economic progress in an integrated South Africa, through fostering high impact entrepreneurial leaders. One of the avenues for developing these high impact leaders is the Scholarship pipeline which funnels promising young individuals through the Scholars programme. The Foundation’s Grade 9 and Grade 11 National Development Camps were recently held with the aim of promoting, supporting and sustaining this mindset development.

The Grade 9 National Development Camp was themed “Kids go Wild”, whilst the theme for the Grade 11 Development Camp was “Dancing with Change”. The camp aims to create self-awareness in learners, activate an entrepreneurial mindset, stimulate academic excellence, promote opportunity engagement and inspire the learners in being visionary. The Foundation’s Pillars of Excellence; Wisdom, Knowledge, Vision, Leadership and Courage are thus connected to all activities and tasks presented to the learners to assist with this process.

The camp created reflective space for the Scholars to consider their identities, their various environments, influences and dreams. Building onto these explorations, the Scholars were challenged to conceptualise and visualise their future careers as an outworking of who they are, and realise the possibility that their environments may function completely differently in the future. The Foundation aims to assist in this journey by providing them with the tools necessary to enable them to make decisions that will determine their futures. The activities that the Scholars engage in will empower them to make appropriate, authentic and informed choices, which could be a springboard into various tertiary paths and career mapping.
This year, the first cohort of twelve Grade 12 Scholars will graduate from the Scholarship and it will be celebrated with a formal event in January 2013.

Scholarship 2014: Applications for the 2014 Scholarship closed on 28th September 2012 with over 4000 applications received from all across Southern Africa. The Foundation’s selection team is currently processing all applications and accessing who is eligible to undergo testing and interviews. Based on the outcome of this process, approximately 100 students will be chosen to attend a Selection Camp in February 2013, which aims to identify the candidates best suited for a full high school Scholarship in 2014.
