Promaths Bursary

Promaths is a programme delivered by Kutlwanong Maths, Science and Technology Centre. The programme, funded by Investec, provides extra Maths and Science classes to high school learners to boost their performance in these subjects. With a 17+ year record of accomplishment, Promaths produces learners who are proficient in Maths and Science as well as driven, ambitious students. Many of these students however are unable to secure bursaries to study further. The Promaths Bursary Fund is specifically designed for Promaths alumni who lack the funding to pursue a tertiary education.

Objectives

  • Provide bursaries to Promaths alumni who are academically and financially deserving and are currently registered at a South African tertiary institution.
  • Improving their chances of completing their tertiary studies.
  • Decrease the number of well deserving Promaths students who matriculate with good results and don’t continue their studies.
  • Increase good role modelling within communities that Promaths operates in.

Fund Administation

  • The fund is a collaboration between all corporate, NGOs and other entities that offer bursaries within rare skills courses.
  • The fund operates independently, from its donors and partners.
  • The fund is administered by StudyTrust, an independent bursary management organisation that was established in 1974, with which Investec has been in partnership since 2007.
