The Scholars’ Scholar Award, launched in 2011, is a unique Canon Collins Scholarship funded through the efforts of alumni. Alumni wanting to acknowledge the opportunity they have had to study can contribute to the campaign, making it possible for another to travel the same road.
This award is the Canon Collins Trust’s most prestigious scholarship and is worth R100 000. The recipient, who is selected by alumni, is an exceptional person: someone who embodies, and can meaningfully contribute to, the Trust’s vision of an open and just society.
Make a difference! Be part of growing the next generation of scholars!
