The Alan Paton Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Alan Paton Memorial Scholarship Fund

This fund is named after one of Maritzburg College’s most famous sons who embodied the values of Self-Discipline, Commitment, Integrity, Courage, Honour and Respect that we still hold so dear today.

The Alan Paton Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to support talented boys whose circumstances prevent them from accessing quality education.

      One hundred scholarships

The Maritzburg College Foundation, in collaboration with Maritzburg College, is embarking on an ambitious campaign to fund 100 bursaries for deserving young College boys.

The fund will enable the school to offer places to prospective College boys who have displayed a suitable level of academic prowess, a unique character and a willingness to immerse themselves in the “College Experience” but whose families are in need of financial assistance.

      How you can help

Your investment will, in conjunction with the school, be allocated towards covering the essential costs, which may include:

  • Academic Fees
  • Boarding costs
  • Books
  • Uniforms and sporting apparel
  • Ad hoc costs such as tours, sporting travel etc

With the support and dedication of the school staff, the Maritzburg College Foundation will monitor and support the scholarship recipients and provide regular feedback regarding their progress and performance.

The Maritzburg College Foundation is looking to partner with individuals and organisations to fund one or more scholarships with a minimum value of R36 000* each per annum for a 5 year period (ie for the duration of a learner’s time at Maritzburg College).

Your investment may be paid as a monthly contribution or alternatively as a lump sum.

* The annual value of a scholarship may be reviewed periodically.

      B-BBEE recognition

The scholarship fund has been specifically structured to accommodate the requirements of the new B-BBEE legislation. B-BBEE certification is provided by RockSolid Consulting, a division of Colenbranders Inc and approved IRBA Registered B-BBEE Auditors.

Points towards your B-BBEE scorecard may be linked to your skills development and / or social investment categories.
