The Sumbandila Scholarship Trust is a highly successful educational initiative in South Africa that provides exceptional opportunities to academically talented students from underprivileged backgrounds.

Since its inception in 2007, the Sumbandila Scholarship Trust has been ardently committed to alleviating educational disparities in South Africa’s underprivileged rural communities.

These programs are designed to identify academically brilliant and motivated students from severely disadvantaged backgrounds and to support them on their educational journey, beginning at secondary school, through tertiary education, and into their professional careers.

They are dedicated to address South Africa’s desperate need for high-quality scientists, engineers, doctors, and IT professionals, prioriticing Math, Science, Engineering, and Technology education.  As a result, a significant proportion of their students (23%) study in Science faculties, 15% in Engineering, 6% in IT, and 19% in Health Sciences.
