The UCT Trust administers many bursaries at UCT which are funded by Foundations, companies and individuals based here in the UK. 

As UCT Trust is a UK charity, individual donors can, of course, reap tax benefits on donations from taxable income, and the UCT Trust is able to claim an extra 25% Gift Aid on top of those donations.

Bursary programmes are aimed specifically, for instance, at budding female medical practitioners who are studying for MBChB or allied healthcare disciplines; opera students; business science – to name but a few.  All bursary programmes are aimed at young people from historically disadvantaged backgrounds, and donors receive annual reports on the students they are supporting and their progress.

Anyone can set up a bursary programme at UCT through the UCT Trust.  Please contact us at for more details.
