Since 2016 Oldenburg Bonsèl & Associates has been awarding a scholarship on a yearly basis for students who are graduating from their high school in South Africa. South Africa has unlike the Netherlands no social system whereby it is possible for everyone to continue to study at an university. Through the scholarship Oldenburg Bonsèl & Associates tries to help the South African society by making it possible for students to continue their education at an university. As an organisation we have the opinion that knowledge is the most important driver for the growth of a country and society. Due to the success and enthusiasm of the students during the previous years, Oldenburg Bonsèl & Associates has decided to once again award the Scholarship to one student in the King Cetshwayo District in 2020!
The scholarship makes it possible for the lucky winner to pursue his/her dream to go to study at an university. The scholarship is exclusively meant for a student who is totally MAD, meaning a student having Motivation, Aspiration and Determination. Through hard work, success is guaranteed! We are looking at all their achievements; so not only their academic activities, but also their personal achievements and all their motivations are taking in consideration. Students who want to apply for the Scholarship Oldenburg Bonsèl 2020 will need to fill in an application form and write a motivational letter. The scholarship will be awarded to a student who intends to study fulltime regardless of the field of study. Through the scholarship the lecture fees and books are funded.
Are you an excellent student in the region of King Cetshwayo District and are you planning to start a study at a university next year? Then apply now for the Oldenburg Bonsèl Scholarship 2020!
