In 2015, UK based UCT alumni are supporting five undergraduates and nine postgraduates studying various disciplines, ranging from Medicine to the Arts, French to Geology and Environmental studies. Last year the programme supported three undergraduates and five postgraduates. All of these students are from historically disadvantaged backgrounds and could not have contemplated furthering their studies without financial aid. We are immensely grateful to all alumni who have made contributions through the years.
If you would like to make a donation to the UK Alumni Bursary Programme, however small, please download a pledge form, and send your donation to UCT Trust. Every penny received will go direct to UCT to support more students. Remember – if you are a UK tax payer, please sign the Gift Aid declaration which enables the UCT Trust to claim an extra 25% from the Inland Revenue to go towards the bursaries.
